Imaging is characterized by a large diversity in the types of data. Indeed, the data can originate from many different acquisition device, i.e., modalities, and the data format convention are quite loose with an important diversity in file formats and in completeness of annotation. The data themselves also strongly differ in their dimensionality, scale, size, and finality. In such context, the life imaging project “IDV” (for Imageries Du Vivant) funded by University Sorbonne Paris Cité (USPC) launched the “Atlas IDV” initiative, which is a typical use case for data volume, variety and veracity in big data.  The Atlas IDV initiative aims at (i) providing an integrated and agile environment supporting cooperation between scientists, and (ii) enabling to augment the research perimeter of imaging scientists and the extraction of new knowledge (data-driven research and images analytics) from the big multi-modal and multi-scale clinical and preclinical images available within the university.
