IDMC or Imaging Data Management Center at University of Copenhagen (KU/UCPH) is
meant for storing, sharing, previewing and processing especially imaging
The intended audience is employees, their collaboration partners and students.
IDMC delivers safe central storage space for own and shared (image) files in
addition to previewing and processing image data. You can use IDMC as a secure
network drive from anywhere and it also comes with interactive analysis tools.
IDMC is delivered by SCIENCE HPC Center and is formally for the faculty of Science, but others have access for collaboration purposes. A roll-out to all of UCPH might be underway to support the general UCPH Data Management Guidelines.
Sensitive and Personal Data (GDPR)
Please note that while IDMC comes with a strong security focus, it is only a solution approved for general scientific data and not for highly sensitive data. In particular it is not for personal data classified as sensitive in the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In case you need to work on such sensitive data we recommend the IDMC sister facility SIF, which is intended and approved for exactly that purpose.
Getting Started with IDMC
We've gathered information about ERDA/IDMC in a few short intro guides and a more thorough user guide
- Sign Up Intro for UCPH and external users
- Workgroup Intro about creating, managing and accessing Workgroups
- Network Drive Intro about using IDMC as a network drive on your computer (only covers Windows for now)
- User Guide with general usage instructions
Please beware that the guides are made for ERDA, the twin system of IDMC, but almost all examples are valid with the replacement of erda.ku.dk with www.idmc.dk and erda.dk with idmc.dk.
We strongly recommend reading and following at least the first intro guide if you want to use IDMC.

Questions and Support
Feel free to contact us using the email link at the bottom of the page in case you have any further questions or comments (in English or Danish). Unfortunately we do not have resources to offer video or phone support, but we typically reply on email the next working-day at the latest.
IDMC comes with only few restrictions and they should be in line with
basic common sense.
