Under the Research Data Services (RDS) Image Publication initiative, three partners – VicNode, QCIF and Intersect – have integrated 50+ instruments with cloud-based data management software to ensure that all data generated by these instruments is automatically captured, managed and delivered to the cloud for processing, analysis and visualisation. The project is seeking to continue to double that effort and expand to new types of instruments and facilities.
What it is
Leveraged investment in community developed data management tools, including MyTardis, DaRIS, OMERO and XNAT, to capture data, help researchers manage the research data lifecycle and to move data to centrally-hosted analysis environments.
A community of eResearch practitioners working towards a common set of sustainable and jointly-supported research enhancing capabilities
Developed and installed services using existing community software, integrated instruments (50+ instruments integrated by the end of the project) and ingested extant and new data collections;
Built user communities (estimated over 500 users have used the services developed - with precise metrics to be collated soon)
Who it’s for
Biomedical, Computer software, Artificial intelligence and Image Processing, Engineering and Volcanology researchers
What it does
Provides users with:
Supported data management tools, including MyTardis, DaRIS, OMERO and XNAT, to capture data, help researchers manage the research data lifecycle and to move data to centrally-hosted analysis environments
Engages and integrates a wide variety of imaging modalities, including optical and electron microscopy, atom probe microscopy, cytometry, x-ray, CT, MRI, MR/PET, custom instruments, and specialised beamlines at ANSTO.
Connects 21 facilities (representing over 100 instruments) to data management tools
