Welcome to the DataHub services. Maybe you have visited one of our information sessions, had an intake interview or spoke with our data stewards in another setting. At this point you're looking for instructions on how to use the DataHub services. This page serves as a quick guide and links to the different DataHub services we provide. 

0. Get in touch with our data stewards

At this point, you probably already worked out a use case for your group with one of our data stewards. If not, please visit one of our information sessions or contact us.


Before you start!

In order to use the DataHub infrastructure, make sure that you are connected to the UM- or MUMC-network. Either physically or via VPN.

1. Check your account and projects

Your UM- or MUMC-account has been activated for usage of the DataHub services by one of our data stewards. You may already have been added to your relevant project. The first step is to check this. 

  1. Login to the DataHub website (right side of page)
  2. Click on Drop zones
  3. Start a new Drop zone
  4. Check in the first dropdown whether your project is listed there.
  5. If not, follow the Create a project guide

If your project is listed, you're ready to upload your data.

2. Uploading project data

Uploading project data to DataHub starts by creating a Drop Zone. This is a special network directory where you can place data from a specific investigation together. After finishing, the data is ingested into DataHub.

  1. Login to the DataHub website (right side of page)
  2. Click on Drop Zones
  3. Follow the Uploading new data via Drop Zones guide

3. Finding data

The Data Warehouse can be used find your data or that of your colleagues. Follow the research data warehouse guide for a step by step guide.

4. Retrieving data

Once you have found your data using the Data Warehouse there are two methods for retrieving data. 

  • Using the iRODS cloudbrowser in your browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc.)
  • Using WebDAV in the desktop file explorer

Both methods are explained step by step in the methods for retrieving data guide.
