NIDB is a powerful, easy to install neuroimaging database designed to allow simple importing, searching, and sharing of imaging data. NIDB associates any modality imaging or other binary data (MR, CT, US, EEG, etc) with a subject through any number of imaging studies or projects. Data is kept at your site, controlled by you, to be shared with other sites whenever you want. NIDB also provides automated pipelining with importing of results back into NIDB which can be searched along with imaging meta data.

The GPL requires that source code to a tool or resource be made available, and that modified versions of the tool or resource (including new tools which include part of the original tool's source) make the modified source available to users.
A developer of a tool or resource distributed under the GPL ensures that users of the tool and of modified versions of the tool may always inspect the source code and modify the source to suit their needs, and that users may modify the tool as they see fit without being obliged to distribute their changes. While this may seem to encourage multiple versions of the same tool, the result is often that changes are passed back to the tool originator and incorporated into the original tool.
