The INCF Digital Atlasing Program, is an International Neuroinfomatics Coordinating Facility INCF collaborative effort to create an atlas-based framework to make the rapidly growing collection of multidimensional data of the rodent brain more widely accessible and usable to the research community. This program has developed an atlas-based sharing framework that includes a common space for the adult C57BL/6J mouse called [Waxholm Space (WHS), and an atlas hub based distributed interoperable INCF Digital Atlasing Infrastructure (DAI). This facilitates spatial navigation across existing and future image data resources.
Now, we are focusing on making it easier to bring new datasets into this framework by helping investigators register their datasets (particularly 2D images) into the 3D WHS with the ultimate goal of creating atlas hubs that share this newly spatially-linked data via DAI.
If you would like more information on registering your data to WHS and sharing it via this infrastructure, join us for a walk-in Tuesday November 16th from 09.30 to 17.00 at the INCF booth at Society for Neuroscience 2012. Attendees will have the opportunity to review their data with members of the Digital Atlasing program, how to register it to the standard mouse atlas WHS, and how to set up an atlas hub. Members of the task forces that will be available include Ilya Zaslavsky, James Gee, and Bryan Avants.
