Data input tutorial
These are the simple steps you need to perform to store your data (images) in Navigator-3.
Alternatively you can map ftp://cmbn-navigator.uio.no:2121 using your operating system measures, here is the example how to do it in Windows 7:
In this case your temporary N3 folder will be available right from "Computer" folder like any other network location.
After the upload is finished you can login into the main data management interface: http://cmbn-navigator.uio.no/navigator/ You should see your project there. Please double-click on the project node and rename it/add metadata:
Click Save button.
Now you are ready to create the Animal. Click Add button in the Animals column. You should see this:
Please provide the metadata, the red fields are mandatory. Click Save button. Select the created node by clicking on it:
The similar way you create the Block – click on Add button in the Block column, fill in the metadata, click Save button and select the created Block node:
Representations: process the uploaded files
Select the files and drag’n’drop them to the Representation column:
Click Yes. The processing might be a time consuming task. After it has started you can close the browser and login later to check the progress:
Processing is finished
After some time the processing is finished:
That’s it – your images are stored in N3.
Tools you get right out of the box
These basic tools are available right after the processing is complete.
- High (virtually unlimited) resolution viewer. Double click on one of the Representation nodes and click OpenZoom button:
It will open the viewer (use mouse (click, drag, wheel) to navigate):
- Film strip viewer. It’s available from Block node (double-click on a block to open the window):
The filmstrip viewer shows all the Representations belonging to the Block (similar to files in a folder):
You can copy viewers URLs and share them (email, skype etc.) without accessing the main data management interface. The Private data is protected by username/password, the recipients should be associated (i.e. have an account) with the Project in order to access the data.
