Proper data management makes researchers’ lives easier

Press/Media: Expert CommentProfessional

Description

Analysing thousands of satellite maps from all over the globe in one go, registering the Dutch wildlife population automatically using camera images, receiving lab-research results neatly sorted on your desktop computer. Data management may sound complicated: it makes the researcher’s life a lot simpler, says Erik van den Bergh. He works as an infrastructure coordinator for the Wageningen Data Competence Centre (WDCC). ‘By combining data correctly, you can use it for so much more, which is super cool.’

    DescriptionDuizenden satellietkaarten van over de hele wereld in één klap analyseren, de Nederlandse wildstand via camerabeelden automatisch registreren, resultaten van laboratoriumonderzoek een paar minuten later als kant-en-klaarpakketje op je pc vinden. Datamanagement mag dan ingewikkeld klinken: het maakt het leven van een onderzoeker makkelijker, zegt Erik van den Bergh. Hij is coördinator infrastructuur van het Wageningen Data Competence Center (WDCC): ‘Door gegevens op de juiste manier te koppelen, kun je er veel meer mee en dat is supergaaf.’
