Middleware for Assisting the Registration of Samples (MARS) is a project of Working Group 4 of the Internet of Samples (iSamples) NSF-funded Research Coordination Network (RCN). MARS is being developed to explore the automation of registering legacy samples at SESAR (System for Earth Sample Registration) with pertinent metadata and a IGSN (International GeoSample Number). The initial targeted repository is the cores collection of Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Mars has not been released for commercial use yet, but MAC users may demo the application by following the instructions for setting up the development environment on the wiki page.
Setting Up Mac Development Environment
You can set up MARS on your Mac Computer, however Windows and Linux versions are still in progress and will be released shortly.
