About the ICAT project

Open source metadata management

ICAT is an open source metadata management system designed for large facilities. It is in use at ISIS, the ILL and Diamond and in development for use at the CLF. ICAT is developed as a collaborative project between ISIS, the STFC eScience department, the CLF, the ILL and Diamond.

ICAT is available via the webpage http://data.isis.stfc.ac.uk, via the 'Catalogue' menu in Mantid or as web services for use in any other program. For more information on using the ICAT webservices please contact isisdata@stfc.ac.uk


ICAT is closely linked to the PaNdata Europe FP7 support action (Photon and Neutron Data Infrastructure)
