Provenance-Enabled Data Exploration and Visualization with VisTrails
Tutorial given at the SciDAC Conference 2009
In this tutorial we discuss the benefits of provenance when combined with workflow systems to aid in data analysis and visualization. We show uses of provenance that go beyond the ability to reproduce and share results. In particular, we present recent techniques developed to enable knowledge re-use and to simplify the process of designing and refining workflows. Instructors will use the open-source VisTrails system and a series of examples from real applications to demonstrate how a provenance management platform can be used to streamline data analysis and visualization.
These are the applications and files used during the hands-on tutorial.
