The ABIDE dataset is the first dataset to be shared publicly through the COINS Data Exchange application. The Data Exchange is a web-based data sharing environment where researchers can browse the extensive COINS database for data related to their research. Requests to share data can then be made to the data's owner. The Data Exchange offers a messaging and approval system to facilitate communication between researchers. Once a request is approved by the data-owner, that data can be downloaded through the Data Exchange download center.
Since the ABIDE dataset is public, it is pre-approved for sharing in the Data Exchange. This means that the ABIDE data will be made instantly available for download upon requesting it. To request ABIDE data through the COINS Data Exchange, follow these simple steps:
LORIS offers the ability for researchers to view and download the ABIDE dataset in part or in whole through its Data Querying tool. Both behavioural and imaging metadata can be queried and output as spreadsheets in various formats. The raw imaging files can also be packaged as compressed data files available for download through a variety of web browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari). Queries can be performed for predefined populations, producing manageable subsets of data.
To request ABIDE data via LORIS:
The LONI IDA, which houses imaging and clinical data for dozens of single and multi-site studies, has added the ABIDE dataset as a publicly shared study. The IDA is a web-based data archive environment where researchers can store, search and share neuroimaging and clinical data. Subject attributes, such as age, gender and diagnostic group along with image-related attributes can be used in searching for data of interest and once data are selected images may be downloaded. Collections of data stored in the IDA can also be ported into the LONI Pipeline workflow environment where a wide variety ofsoftware and tools are available for image processing and analysis.
Because the ABIDE dataset is anonymized, a separate ABIDE Data Sharing Agreement is not required for obtaining ABIDE data. However access to the IDA does require an active user account. To access ABIDE data through the IDA, follow these simple steps:
The ABIDE dataset joins a number of publicly accessible datasets available in the NITRC IR (including the 1000 Functional Connectomes 'Classic' release, ADHD-200, CANDIShare). The NITRC-IR provides a XNAT database version of select datasets previously available on NITRC.org as bundled 'tar' files in the 1000 Functional Connectomes resource.
The ABIDE dataset is publicly available, but requires users to register with the 1000 Functional Connectomes project at NITRC.org. To access ABIDE data through the NITRC-IR, follow these simple steps:
Neuroinformatics Database is a modular, scalable, and easy to use database that installs in less than 1 hour. It includes data request, MRI QA, dicom receiver modules and can also store and query any modality of imaging data, including full assessments and phenotypic data. Automatic pipeline processing is also available as a module.
ABIDE data is not available for download from the NIDB website, but data can be imported into an NIDB installation once data has been downloaded from other sites. To use NIDB to sort and serve ABIDE data, follow these steps:
