MIDAS integrates multimedia server technology with Kitware's open-source image analysis and visualization packages. The multimedia server follows open standards for data storage, access, and harvesting. It has been optimized for storing massive collections of large, scientific images and related meta-data and reports. MIDAS has been deployed as an electronic publication center, a shared resource for research, a digital archive, and combinations thereof. Local, centralized, and distributed batch processing is provided via an extensible scripting language that has been specialized for image-based hypothesis testing.
A variety of data access methods are provided including web, file system, and DICOM server interfaces. Kitware can host your data and provide computational resources using its MIDAS installation or customize and install MIDAS at your site.
