Second Workshop - Technical Meeting - 15th June 2006

Researching e-Science Analysis of Census Holdings

The second workshop in the ReACH series built on the conclusions from the All Hands Meeting (14th June 2006, UCL). Participants were a smaller group of those from interested parties, meeting in order to ascertain the technical issues regarding mounting Ancestry and TNA’s historical census data on the UCL Research Computing facilities. This provided the technical information necessary for implementation of a full scale project.

This workshop meeting aimed to ascertain:

  • How the data will be delivered to UCL
  • The size of the data
  • The structure of the data
  • The function of searches to be undertaken on the UCL Research Computing facilities
  • The duration of the project
  • The number and type of employees required
  • The equipment required (to purchase)
  • The equipment required (access to existing kit)
  • Software required
  • Software development issues
  • Security issues
  • Any other technical issues which may arise
