The MAP-Core scaffold mapping tool is an open source application that is developed as part of the DRC which enables users to robustly and reproducibly map SPARC data into anatomical organ scaffolds. The scaffold mapping tool will also ensure that required metadata and visualization files are correctly added to a dataset to enable rendering and visual exploration on the SPARC Portal.
The MAP-Core scaffold mapping tool is a specialized release of the MAP-Client application which is a framework for managing workflows. The specialized release is pre-packaged with the tools required for mapping data to organ scaffolds, producing visual renderings for the SPARC Portal, and enriching datasets with the mapped data.
