Best Poster Award for Metadata Extractor and Schema Mapper

A team of SCC scientists won an award for the best poster at the Materials Research Data Alliance Annual Meeting conducted from 21.02.23 to 23.02.23.

MaRDA Best Poster Award

At the Materials Research Data Alliance (MaRDA) annual meeting, held Feb. 21-23, a team of SCC researchers received an award for the best poster.

The poster describes the tool Metadata Extractor and Schema Mapper, that automates metadata collection from instruments, enabling researchers to extract the metadata without manual effort and map it to a well-defined metadata schema. A browser based GUI facilitates the use of the tool for the researchers, requiring no programming expertise from them. The pilot version supports TIFF images generated by Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) manufactured by Zeiss.

This tool has been developed in the frame of the German Research Data Infrastructure for Materials Science NFDI-MatWerk, the NFFA-Europe Pilot (NEP), the Joint Lab "Integrated Model and Data-driven Materials Characterization", the SDL-Materials Science and the Helmholtz Metadata Collaboration (HMC) platform.

In the department Data Exploitation Methods Division (SCC-DEM) researchers develop novel methods and technologies for describing and exploring huge research data collections.
