Data collecting and preparing is generally considered a crucial process in data science projects. Especially for image data, adding semantic attributes when preparing image data provides much more insights for data scientists. In this project, we aim to implement a general-purpose central image data repository that allows image researchers to collect data with semantic properties as well as data query. One of our researchers has come up with the specific challenge of collecting images with weight data of infants in least developed countries with limited internet access. The rationale is to predict infant weights based on image data by applying Machine Learning techniques. To address the data collecting issue, I implemented a mobile application which features online and offline image and annotation upload and a web application which features image query functionality. This work is derived and partly decoupled from the previous project – ImageSfERe (Image Sharing for Epilepsy Research), which is a web-based platform to collect and share epilepsy patient imaging.
