Initial PhD research questions


I have now begun my doctoral research under the title:

Using XML and Semantic Technologies to Manage Astronomy data

Initial questions that need answers are:

  • What are the current different types of astronomy data and how is this data produced?
  • What are the current technologies used for transferring, storing and using data?
  • Is there a comprehensive existing XMLSchema for storing astronomy data, including associated semantic data?
  • What data management needs have already been identified?
  • Is there a comprehensive existing semantic ontology for astronomy?
  • How exactly would incorporating semantic data be a help?
  • Is there software available with the functionality to transform and store astronomy data according to users’ requirements, be these users human or machine.

Any information or advice is appreciated !
