We at CHI are thrilled to announce the release of the first two tools (Version 1 Beta) in a new software suite, the Digital Lab Notebook (DLN).
DLN is a metadata toolkit designed to simplify the collection of standards-based metadata, essential to scientific imaging. The goal is widespread democratization of tools that worldwide cultural caretakers can deploy to digitally capture, build, archive, and reuse digital representations. We hope you will download and try out these new tools!
With a user-friendly interface, this tool expedites and simplifies user input of metadata -- such as locations, institutions, imaging subjects, image rights -- with a template process.
This tool automatically ensures that each image set meets the requirements for high-quality computational photography imaging, checking for image-processing errors, such as sharpening, that should not be applied to photogrammetry or RTI image data.
Instructional Videos for DLN
See our new Vimeo channel -- Simplifying Scientific Imaging -- where we have posted an instructional video series about the DLN, what it does, how to use the software tools, and more.
