The Australian Synchrotron and ANSTO have both selected an all-Australian software solution to assist with storing and managing the reams of scientific data generated by their experiments. They will use TARDIS/MyTARDIS, a software system developed by computer scientists at Monash University, to make data more accessible, easier to interpret and easier to verify and report.

The decision means scientists from the two organisations, which support some of Australia’s most sophisticated scientific instruments, can cooperate more effectively, and better organise the information gathered from their experiments, ultimately making data easier to retrieve and use.

The TARDIS project is supported by the Australian National Data Service (ANDS). ANDS itself is supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy Program and the Education Investment Fund (EIF) Super Science Initiative.
