Historically grown research projects, headed by researchers with limited understanding of data sustainability, data reusability and standards, often lead to data silos. While the data is very valuable it can not be used by any service except the tool it was prepared for. Research institutes face the problem that over the years, the number of such data graveyards will increase because new projects will always be designed from scratch. After describing the problem in detail and giving an overview about the lessons learnt from visualization, data exploration and interactive data approaches, we show how to overcome the dispersion produced by data silos, a multitude of metadata formats and outdated tools using the CMDI, suggested by CLARIN. In this work we propose a CMDI-based approach for data rescue and data reuse, where data is retroactively joined into one repository minimising implementation effort of future research projects.
