Step 1 - Getting started

Select between the following 4 options to get started with your dataset organization process with SODA:

  1. Prepare a new dataset: Click this option if you want to start organizing and curating a new dataset. SODA will take you step-by-step through the curation process to organize your dataset, adding your metadata files, and generating your dataset onto Pennsieve.

  3. Continue working on an existing local dataset: Click this option if you have a local dataset stored on your computer that you want to continue working on. Existing high-level SPARC folders and metadata files will be automatically extracted and loaded into SODA so you can continue working on them.
  4. Continue working on an existing Pennsieve dataset: Click this option if you have an existing dataset on Pennsieve that you want to continue working on. Existing high-level SPARC folders and metadata files will be automatically extracted and loaded into SODA so you can continue working on them.
