Update README.md

parent aef0a0b4
> **Preamble:** We strive to make marine image data [FAIR](https://www.go-fair.org/fair-principles/). We maintain [data profiles](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/metadata-profiles-fdos) to establish a common language of marine imagery, we develop - here in this repository - 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.
## Preface
Publishing marine image data in a FAIR and open way requires data curation for both image data and image metadata. These quality control steps need to follow common standard operating procedures (SOPs) to facilitate joint data interpretation. This repository mainly collects SOPs for the QA/QC steps between acquisition and publication. It also contains some example SOPs on image acquisition for the interested user. It does not yet provide operational steps for the publication phase (e.g. physical file transfer to Pangaea).
Publishing marine image data in a FAIR and open way requires data curation for both image data and image metadata. These quality control steps need to follow common standard operating procedures (SOPs) to facilitate joint data interpretation. This repository mainly collects SOPs for the QA/QC steps between acquisition and publication. It also contains some example SOPs on image acquisition for the interested user. It does not yet provide operational steps for the publication phase (e.g. physical file transfer to Pangaea). The SOPs vary in granularity and not all may be applicable to your usecase.
To make full use of the [MarIQT software tools](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/software/mar-iqt) that implement some of the SOPs functionalities, you need to follow the guidelines on [file formats](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/standard-operating-procedures/-/blob/master/file-formats.md), adhere to the [folder structure](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/standard-operating-procedures/-/blob/master/folder-structure.md) and the [provenance documentation](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/standard-operating-procedures/-/blob/master/provenance-documentation.md) (which is done for you automatically while using MarIQT).
# Standard operating procedures (SOPs)
This section is your starting point for exploring the MareHub AG V/I SOP documents. This readme provides some background and context information on how visualizations of the SOPs are structured and how the data workflow is explained. It is like an SOP for SOPs. You can find the existing marine imaging SOPs [here](https://gitlab.hzdr.de/datahub/marehub/ag-videosimages/standard-operating-procedures/-/tree/master/SOPs).
