These are the simple steps you need to perform to store your data (images) in Navigator-3.

Upload files

The first step is to upload the files using any FTP client (e.g. FileZilla) to your personal temporary folder, the URL is ftp://cmbn-navigator.uio.no:50021
Note the non-standard port number:

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:

Map ftp.PNGUsername ftp.PNG

In this case your temporary N3 folder will be available right from "Computer" folder like any other network location.

Login to Navigator-3

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:

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.

Data sharing

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.
