  An in-depth look - Preferred formats

Data archives often maintain a list of preferred formats for the delivery of data. The preferred format lists of DANS and 4TU.Centre for Research Data can be found in the document viewer below. Only for data delivered in a preferred format can data archives like DANS and 4TU.Centre for Research Data guarantee long-term storage and accessibility.

There are reasons for preferring some data formats over others. For example, the preferred formats for image files are: 

  • JPEG, a universally used format which has the advantage of being easily accessible from many applications.
  • TIFF, a format which allows you to preserve images at the highest quality, without compression, albeit with large file sizes.
  • PNG, a high-quality format of a smaller file size than TIFF, with the disadvantage of not allowing the inclusion of metadata such as the type of camera used to take the picture. JPEG and TIFF do possess this functionality.

Harry Garst - ik kan niet zo snel zien wat het aanbevolen bestandstype is voor video materiaal. Heb ik erover heengelezen?
Ik heb wel eens een bestand omgezet naar avi, maar kreeg toen een gigantisch groot bestand. Nu gebruik ik zelf mp4.

Research Data Netherlands - @Harry: AV-materiaal staat in het overzicht van DANS in paragraaf 2.11: MPEG-4 is een van de voorkeursformaten.
