Data Management

Storage capacity for one digitized object

  • 5-50MB
  • 50-500MB

Primary data types

  • compressed images
  • uncompressed images

Automatic metadata

It is possible to have all the metadata of the pictures added to the stacked picture in Zerene Stacker. The other metadata has to be noted by the photographer during picturing.

Additional metadata

It is key that at least the magnification, step size and specimen number + view is noted by the photographer, to be able to check parameters afterwards. For pure statistics it can be usefull to write down the amount of pictures taken per view as well.
