Scientific applications such as satellite imaging, bioinformatics, and medical imaging often deal with proprietary image and video formats that combine multiple resolutions and metadata in order to containerize information. But it is prohibitive to deal with such data when using it for machine learning or displaying it for expert analysis. ApertureData Platform can maintain a common interface but store the metadata and data in ways that make it simpler to manage and easier to access and search. It can provide efficient ways of re-formatting this data as needed. Developers and data scientists can query and update the information on existing data as and when needed, and share it with experts, to help them with diagnoses.
