Ad Hoc Committee on Open Image Archives

Stemming from the November 2009 Imaging Biomarker Roundtable, the Ad Hoc Committee on Open Image Archives was established in order to examine existing image sharing and archival standards and database formats. Committee efforts will focus on identifying why prior activities have been successful or have experienced obstacles. The committee is co-chaired by Dr. Gudrun Zahlmann (Roche) and Mr. Rick Avila (Kitware).

OIA Key Characteristics

In the coming weeks the committee will be exploring and documenting universal and important characteristics of Open Image Archives. This will provide information to Open Image Archive maintainers/developers as well as help us formulate recommendations that will improve the number, size, and quality of Open Image Archives. We will start by discussing the following areas:

  • Quality of the data curation process
  • Speed to post datasets
  • Support for imaging data types and metadata
  • Robust querying and ease of performing a download
  • Long-term integrity and support
  • Advanced computing services
