Computational data includes "the results from executing a computer model or simulation."[1]

Data preservation[]

"If comprehensive information about the model (including a full description of the hardware, software, and input data) is available, preservation in a long-term repository may not be necessary because the data can be reproduced. Thus, although the outputs of a model may not need to be preserved, archiving of the model itself and of a robust metadata set may be essential."[2]
