This project is seeking to develop a database framework and acces tools applicable to marine imagery that will facilitate the timely delivery of standardized, quantitative estimates of ecologically relevant indicators (such as absence/presence, percent cover, abundance and distribution of benthic organisms and associated substrates) through the analysis of visual data ...
The desired result of the Rock Art project was to improve the maintainability of UWA archaeology data sets, to share data with collaborating researchers and also with the wider research community. Making the data available to indigenous communities was also a goal. The Rock Art Data System solution is connected ...
Prior to this project, the University of Western Australia did not have central guidelines and advice relating to research data management. The University had policies in this area (including record-keeping policies), but researchers were expected to take responsibility for managing their own data. As a result of this project, researchers ...
As technology for capturing information about marine environments improves and becomes more widespread, the volume of data collected has been increasing by several order of magnitude. Marine researchers in Australia and overseas are using ever more sophisticated imaging technology which is producing valuable data. The cost of creating this data ...
Australian cities are growing rapidly and the need to curtail urban sprawl whilst maintaining high standards of liveability and sustainability are critical issues for Federal, State and Local Governments as well as for the planners and developers integrally involved with the on-ground interpretation and implementation of our planning policies. An ...
The overall aim of the UWA Data Capture projects was to ensure that the University of Western Australia had a metadata store for capturing metadata about research data collections, and that the University was in a position to contribute metadata in the RIF-CS format to the ARDC. The UWA1 project ...
The desired result from the CMCA project was to implement software and hardware infrastructure that allows the microscopy data (raw image and spectral data) to be stored, and searched based on appropriate metadata. This metadata includes machine settings and other directly available data. It also includes data that cannot be ...
Due to the tight relationship between subcellular compartments and protein function, proteome-wide protein localization is an important goal in cell biology for plants and crops. For one model plant, Arabidopsis, a wealth of computational and experimental data exists that has been used to create global protein localisation data, and protein ...
The Metadata Stores activity has contributed to the development of UWA’s overall research data infrastructure by playing its part in ensuring that data management, via the MS17 project, is possible, via the provision of infrastructure to enable researchers to meet the requirements laid down by funding bodies and UWA. The ...
AgriConnect (GFA07)
A significant number of data collections in the area of plant biology and agriculture are being organised and made available under the High Value Collections Program. These form a highly catalogued resource collection for further analysis of Australian research in this area. Connecting multiple levels of data to crop genomes, ...
