Caosdb comes with search abilities for a direct access to exactly the data you need. On one hand it is possible to easily get an overview or browse your data. On the other hand powerful queries allow you to target very specific information.
A semantic data model makes Caosdb very flexible! This does not only mean that the data structures can be adjusted any time by the user, but also that it is easy to extend the data stored in Caosdb. Thus Caosdb grows with you needs!
Caosdb is designed in a way that allows to integrate Caosdb into existing workflows in a minimally invasive fashion. It is open source, can be extended and has no closed or restricted intefaces or data formats.
The semantic solution for FAIR data management
CaosDB is a software toolbox for data management. Its focus lies on managing data in dynamic environments of research and development where changes are too frequent or projects are too small to bear the great cost of implementing a traditional specialized and but inflexible data management system. The research data management system (RDMS) CaosDB uses a semantic data model that allows to grow and change in those dynamic environments!
CaosDB was developed in the Biomedical Physics Group at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen and was published as open source software! You can download the sources:
Max Planck Digital Library funds project to improve CaosDB
The developers of CaosDB are happy to spread the news! The Max Planck Digital Library decided to fund a project residing at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organisation over two years.
The aim of the project is to “extend the research data management system CaosDB and prepare it for intergroup usage at the MPI for Dynamics and Self-Organization” [project site].
We don’t miss the age of chaos!
Unfortunately, data management concepts like the one behind Caosdb are not yet standard. We provide more information on different levels:
