Digital Archiving and Processing with MIDAS

Kitware Inc.


Motivation

  • Scientific datasets are becoming larger and larger (increasing resolution, new modalities, …)

  • Storing datasets is the first step but querying and retrieving them is even more important

  • Related documents should be stored along with the corresponding datasets

  • Data without metadata are useless

  • Distributed and remote computing is becoming a necessity

  • Distributed visualization is an emerging technology

  • Goal is to increase collaboration between research teams


What is MIDAS?

  • Web-based Multimedia Digital Archiving System

  • Store, search and manage digital media

  • Open Source (BSD)

  • Started in 2005, based on DSpace

  • Modular and highly customizable Framework

  • Provides an external API to access media: REST, C++

  • Provides server side processing via distributed computing

  • Provides online visualization

  • MIDAS features

  • - Large datasets

  • - Image Gallery

  • - Download/Processing carts

  • - Handle system

  • - OAI-PMH

  • - MIDAS-FS

MIDAS Technology

  • Server for storing and managing digital content

  • - Apache (www)

  • - PostgreSQL/MySQL (database)

  • Web 2.0 technology

  • - PHP

  • - Ajax

  • - Flash

  • - Unit testing (integrated with CDash)

  • Clients

  • - Web API (REST API)

  • - Standalone Client (MidasDesktop)

  • - C++ API

  • - WebDAV

Server Side Processing


Server Side Processing

  • Distributed computing using BatchMake (www.batchmake.org)

  • Support for Condor Grid

  • Online selection of datasets and tasks

  • Online monitoring of grid processing jobs

  • Online reporting


Ongoing Work

  • Phase II NIH STTR: Murine Imaging with Martin Styner at UNC

    • Server-side processing on neural imagery from rodents

  • NIH NLM A2D2 SCORE

    • Segmentation validation framework within built on MIDAS

  • Phase I NIH STTR: COVALIC

    • Fully featured segmentation validation and method repository built on MIDAS and IJ technologies


Kitware Deliverables

  • Aim 2.1 : Y1/Q3 – Y2/Q1

    • Open-source Software: Demonstrator

  • Aim 2.2 : Y2/Q1 – Y4/Q3

    • Open-source Software: Profile Editor

    • Open-source Software: MIDAS interfaced with the NBIA database

    • Open-source Software: Batch processing workflow interfaced with the Algorithm Validation Toolkit

    • Open-source Software: “Dashboard” in MIDAS

    • Open-source Software: Integrate the “R” statistical package

  • Aim 2.2 : Y4/Q3 – Y5/Q4

    • Active Dissemination


Project Demonstrator

  • Import a dataset from NBIA into MIDAS

    • Done using NBIAAdapter, a Java CLI Application

  • Set up XML descriptions of seed points and ROIs (AIM)

  • Run the lesion sizing toolkit algorithm on the dataset using Batchmake

  • Create a performance report (AVT)
