About the Leibniz Data Manager

The Leibniz Data Manager (LDM) is an open source and free web-based application for Research Data Management (RDM). LDM delivers different distributions to best fit the specific requirements of various customers, e.g., institutes and research groups performing RDM in various scientific disciplines. The LDM distributions are designed, maintained, and curated by TIB and L3S.

The LDM offers the following functions for the visualization of research data:

  • Supports data collections and publications  with different formats
  • Different views on the same data set (2D and 3D support)
  • Visualization of Auto CAD files
  • Jupyter Notes for demonstrating live code
  • RDF Description of data collections

The file specific viewers were implemented using CKAN (Comprehensive Knowledge Archive Network) plugins to render existing viewers for the datasets included in the CKAN instance.

The RDM arelated concepts, the LDM distributions, and the deployment methods are explained in the projects wiki on GitHub.

Besides the Leibniz Data Manager, TIB provides further services around research data management for institutions and researchers. This includes a DOI service, support in choosing the right repositories, and in publishing and archiving research data, as well as training and advisory services.
