NeuroImaging Data Model (NIDM)
A model to represent neuroimaging data with their metadata in support of data sharing and reuse!
NIDM is currently made up of:
- 1 released model
- NIDM-Results: harmonised representation of mass univariate neuroimaging results (such as fMRI)
- 2 models under development
NIDM is defined as an extension the W3C PROV standard for provenance.
The NIDM-Results specification is available at: http://nidm.nidash.org/specs/nidm-results.html

- NIDM-Results I/O (reference implementations): Python library, Matlab library
- Export to NIDM-Results from neuroimaging tools: FSL to NIDM-Results, SPM to NIDM-Results
Interested in using NIDM-Results? See the get started with NIDM page where you will find how to publish your fMRI results from SPM and FSL & upload to NeuroVault.
Thanks for you interest in contributing to NIDM-Results! If you would like to submit an update or outline an issue with the NIDM-Results specification, please submit an issue or email us. You can also join our weekly calls!
The work-in-progress NIDM-Workflows specification is available here.
Thanks for you interest in contributing to NIDM-Workflows! Contributions to NIDM-Workflows are gathered on the work-in-progress NIDM-Worklows specification. Please feel free to commment directly on this document, submit an issue or email us. You can also join our weekly calls!

NIDM weekly calls
We meet every week by videoconference on Mondays at 8-9am PDT / 11am-12pm EDT / 4-5pm BST. The group is always open to new contributors interested in neuroimaging data sharing. To join the call or to ask any question, please email us at email@example.com.
The NIDM working group is a collaboration supported by the INCF.
