The road to FAIR data is not always an easy one. Our units are developing and maintaining new software tools and services that will facilitate FAIR handling of data.
Here you can find an overview of all tools already available by HMC.
The base-repo is a generic, general purpose research data repository service offering clear, machine-actionable RESTful interfaces for storing, retrieving, and managing research data.
The Collection Registry allows building collections of digital objects, independent of any repository to facilitate data interoperability, reuse and make collections actionable to be able to cope with ever-increasing amounts and volumes of data.
Data Collections Explorer
The Data Collections Explorer is an information system for the engineering community to facilitate research of domain specific repositories and databases, as well as datasets published individually by research groups.
DirSchema is a metadata specification and validation tool that enforces structural metadata requirements in local datasets.
FAIR DO CookBook
This collection of small recipes offers guidance and advice on different aspects related to FAIR DOs.
FAIR DO Lab
The FAIR DO Lab is a configurable structure of services to fulfill generic FAIR Digital Object (FAIR DO) use cases.
FAIR-DOscope is an easy-to-use, generic FAIR Digital Object viewer and browser accepting PIDs of FAIR DOs and presenting the associated PID record in a graphical and user-friendly way.
Metadata Standards Catalog
The Metadata Standards Catalog is an information platform for users looking for metadata standards and metadata tools fitting their needs.
Metador provides a web-based structured submission interface for systematically sharing structured metadata alongside research data in direct collaborations.
MetaStore is a metadata repository that greatly simplifies the management of large volumes of metadata documents.
PIDA is a service providing unique persistent URLs (PURLs) for referencing digital assets on the web. Using our service will help you to ensure that your digital assets remain findable and can be accessed reliably by both humans and machines in the long term.
ro-crate-java enables the safe creation and modification of research packages following the RO-Crate specification.
Typed PID Maker
The Typed PID Maker is an entry point to integrate digital resources into the FAIR DO ecosystem.
Web Annotation Protocol Server
The Web Application Protocol server allows creating and managing annotations following the Web Annotation Data Model (WADM) specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (w3c).
