Rattenbury, M.S. 2020 The New Zealand Community Fault Model: information management principles and processes. Lower Hutt, N.Z.: GNS Science. GNS Science report 2020/08. 9 p.; doi: 10.21420/T53T-5J42

Abstract:  Information management around the New Zealand Community Fault Model (NZ-CFM) project is most relevant at the start and conclusion of the building of the first version of the 3D geometrical fault model. Various components of the NZ-CFM information management should be summarised in two or three documents: 1.NZ-CFM information management principles and processes documentation that underpins the wider project (this report). 2.  NZ-CFM design documentation that describes key decisions and assumptions around the design and modelling approach for the first version of the 3D geometrical fault modelling. This could remain in agreed draft form until completion of the NZ-CFM building and published as part of the following document. 3. NZ-CFM delivery and implementation documentation that describes the completed first version of the 3D geometrical fault model and discusses how the model has been built and how it can be used. The NZ-CFM should meet FAIR Data Principles, that is, be Findable through ISO19115-compliant metadata stored in a harvestable metadata catalogue, Accessible via a shared server identified by the metadata, Interoperable through common file formats used and wanted by the community and Reusable where the terms of use are fully understood and the build history and assumptions (lineage) of the model are well-described. The initial NZ-CFM and subsequent variants should adopt good information management practice to avoid duplication, mitigate inappropriate use, enable model sharing and encourage consistent application. In addition, NZ-CFM variants should be published to inform on model status/vintage, provide credit and improve searchability. (auth)
