History with Data: from an undergraduate
student, horticulture scientist perspective

The effect of low level electromagnetic fields on seed growth


Scientific Research
Plan


Experiment:


5
groups of 100
phaseolus

vulgaris
seeds


20 seeds
of
each group potted in one gallon pots


80 seeds of
group petri dish


Home control


Travel control


SC1= stone chamber 30 minutes


SC2= stone chamber 70 minutes


CC1= corbelled chamber 70 minutes



Data Collection


Germination Rate


Shoot Height


Leaf Area Index


Dry
Weight


Data
Analysis



Positively charged ions sink to the floor


Negatively charged ions rise


Separation of charges creates electromagnetic


pulsing within the airspace


Pulsing is measure by Electrostatic voltmeter

History with Data: from a working
horticulture scientist perspective

Trial Garden
Research



Data
collection and recording


Data
input: Access versus Excel


Plant Ratings


Type of data:


* genus, species, cultivar, source, common name, unique ID,




botanical family


* flower date


* height (multiple data points)


* spread


* flower color


* foliage color


Trial Garden Data

Data Collection: sophisticated!

Data Input: Access

Example of visible data


History with Data: from a graduate
student, information scientist perspective


UNCA
Special Collections: HACA maps and
collection



Provenance


Metadata creation and planning


Format modification


Unique ID planning/creation


Data input practice/mishaps


Transferal of Access metadata to
Frontpage


History with Data: current concepts



Provenance


Metadata standards and use


Controlled Vocabulary


Organization of Data


Levels of Description


Information Retrieval


Data Indexing


Future with Data: concepts into
practice

Understanding of data lifecycle components, lacking
some applications



Look forward to:



format modification



file conversions



data migration



further data description



data ingestion



data appraisal



data sharing, access, and reuse techniques



data encoding




Any
Questions?
