How is data and metadata structured in bioimaging? To provide a comprehensive overview of the most important technical terms and concepts with respect to metadata, the I3D:bio team created a poster that combines a glossary on terms with the conceptual relationships between different terms. This poster is also presented in a recorded poster talk by S. Kunis here. [...]
Metadata is often referred to as "data about data". It describes properties associated with the experiment that has led to the pixel image including all information to fully understand what was imaged and how the image was generated.Technical metadataThis metadata includes information on the hardware that was used to acquire an image and which settings were used. This information [...]
back to: BioImaging Metadata Why research-discipline-specific metadata standards are needed The FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, reusable) principles provide guidance in the form of general criteria for what renders data FAIR. However, no discrete technical adoption of these rather loosely defined criteria is provided. The reason is that no universal solution can meet the needs of all [...]
The image data management platform OMERO offers possibilities for structured metadata annotation. But with possibilities come decisions to make. Research projects are complex and, therefore, giving a unique one-size-fits-all recommendation for data structuring is difficult. Nevertheless, some basic principles for using structured annotations may help to shape your research data management to optimize usability. As we detailled in our [...]
I3D:bio is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) as a collaborative project of four German universities or research institutes. It is supported by German BioImaging – Gesellschaft für Mikroskopie und Bildanalyse e.V.
