Technical note Open Access
The purpose of this Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is to describe to all administrators, data managers and users of the federated MareHub Elements environment how to add and manage research image data in the Elements environment.
The goal of this document is to enable stakeholders to use Elements environment optimally and consistently to support its purpose as the image data provider for other tools (PANGAEA, BIIGLE, ..).
The scope of this SOP includes the steps necessary to prepare the Elements environment for incoming data, add new data to it, manage and curate image data inside the Elements environment and provide access to the image and metadata to external users and tools.
Completing the SOP will result in well-curated image data that adheres to open standards and which is accessible to selected users through the web interfaces of the Elements environment for analysis, visualization and advertising.
