The Chronopolis Project Partners are building a digital preservation environment to manage and store data as a service to Data Providers. The system does not hold data from the partners. A subset of the project team, the Metadata Working Group made an analysis of the system by tracing a digital object through the system. System activities were divided into Event Types and metadata gathered by the digital object on its way through the system were documented.
