An experience of "learning by doing": the hand surface images archive

AMIA Annu Symp Proc. 2008 Nov 6:1042.


For a common user, bioimages seem to be very easy to treat, to read, to understand and, therefore, to archive. Conversely, bioimage archiving requires a complex design and implementation process. We proposed to a class of bioengineering students the implementation of a hand image repository specifically designed for highlighting the main features that should be taken into account when treating bioimage archives.
