#OpenData highlights: Power lifting and more brain scans

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

The Data is Plural newsletter seems to have a thing for medical image databases (or at least an easy time finding them). This week's edition features another brain scan database, as well as a data set on power lifting:
More brain scans. Last year, the Stanford Center for Reproducible Neuroscience launched OpenNeuro, “a free and open platform for analyzing and sharing neuroimaging data.” (It’s the successor to the center’s earlier initiative, OpenfMRI.) You can, for instance, download scans of brains that were watching a particular episode of The Twilight Zone. Related: The Brain Imaging Data Structure, “a simple and intuitive way to organize and describe your neuroimaging and behavioral data.” Previously: The Open Access Series of Imaging Studies (DIP 2017.08.16).

Powerlifting. OpenPowerlifting.org “aims to create a permanent, accurate, convenient, accessible, open archive of the world's powerlifting data. In support of this mission, all of the OpenPowerlifting data and code is available for download in useful formats.” So far, that includes 400,000+ performances at 9,000+ competitions in dozens of countries.
