Research Enabling Software Use Cases

Research cyberinfrastructure supports a wide variety of research needs. By documenting use cases the open research community can track the specific ways that researchers use cyberinfrastructure. Each use case describes a single thing that one can do using that infrastructure. At a high level, research cyberinfrastructure supports four kinds of activities: scientific computing, scientific data, account management, and community building. These four activities are made possible by an underlying set of enabling functions.
