RADIATE is aiming at adopting high quality standards with regard to the archiving and publishing research data aided by RADIATE’s Data Management Plan (.pdf, 1 MB). Data acquisition, filtering, metadata extraction and final fitting procedures of IBA data typically requires a whole chain of tools to be applied by the researcher. For each of these tasks different laboratories invoke disparate tools and store intermediate files in various file formats and use different analysis software to interpret and visualize the data.
By embracing common data standards, the RADIATE partners create a strategic framework for managing the data generated across the project and beyond.
As a milestone for the project, the RADIATE consortium agreed on a Common IBA data format (.pdf, 0.8 MB)
