> **Preamble:** We strive to make marine image data [FAIR](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/metadata-profiles-fdos/-/blob/master/FAIR-marine-images.md). We maintain - here in this repository - [data profiles](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/metadata-profiles-fdos) to establish a common language for marine imagery, we develop best-practice [operating procedures](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/standard-operating-procedures) for handling marine images and we develop [software tools](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/software/mar-iqt) to apply the vocabulary and procedures to marine imagery.
# Introduction
Achieving FAIRness and Openness of (marine) image data requires structured and standardized metadata on the image data itself and the visual and semantic image data content. This metadata shall be provided in the form of FAIR digital object (FDOs). The following definitions describe how the image data itself shall be enriched by iFDOs, the visual content of the images by Proxy-FDOs (pFDOs) and the semantic content of the image data by sFDOs.
Achieving FAIRness and Openness of (marine) image data requires structured and standardized metadata on the image data itself and the visual and semantic image data content. This metadata shall be provided in the form of FAIR digital objects (FDOs). The content of this repository describes how FDOs for images (aka iFDOs) shall be structured. If you want, an iFDO is a human and machine-readable file format for an entire image set except that it does not contain the actual image data, only references to it!
## Delicious (marine) image data
iFDOs consist of sections. Some are required, some are recommended, some are optional. You will only have FAIR image data with the required sections. You will only gain visibility and credit for iFDOs with the recommended sections populated. And you will only have awesome image data in case you also populate your domain-specific optional sections.
## Version
Continuous versioning of the FDOs is given by the commit hashes. Releases with numerical versioning will be created upon major changes.
