WG 7 - Objectives

The Work Group 7 focuses on various aspects of Image Metadata (initially primarily Microscopy Metadata but also Sample and Analysis Metadata). These span from defining and continually revising the 4DN-BINA-OME (NBO) Microscopy Metadata model, to facilitating metadata capture through user-friendly tools, to integrating the captured metadata into cloud-ready storage containers such as the newly developed Open Microscopy Environment (OME) Next-Generation File Format (NGFF). To promote the uptake of metadata tools and models, educational material and outreach strategies are also developed.  

To carry on these tasks, WG7 is organized into four Subgroups (see “Subgroup” tab below), each of which carries out specific objectives. These subgroups are created, paused, or dissolved on a needs basis as agreed by the WG7 as a whole.

The general meeting serves as a space for reporting back on the progress that has been achieved within the Subgroups, connecting the dots, strategic planning, and general discussions.

The Subgroups (see “Subgroup” tab below) identify specific tasks to be carried out to move our work forward. To participate, please first fill in the general QUAREP-LiMi membership form and then enter your name here. Still confused? No worries, we have a specific list of tasks that you can check out to know exactly how you can lend a hand.
