A Cinema database is a collection of data extracts that can be accessed for visualization or interactive data exploration via a viewer application.
- Spec D : With Cinema release v1.3 and later, Cinema converged on a specification, Spec D specification, that incorporates the flexibility and functionality of previous releases while expanding the Cinema data specifications. Official Release Notes are available on the CinemaScience GitHub page. This specification includes multiple files per database entry and arbitrary data. It has a suite of flexible viewers and view components for a wide range of analysis approaches.
- CIS : A second specification is the new Composable Image Set specification, Cinema Image Set Specification, that supports advanced and flexible post hoc colormapping.
