Flywheel captures a great deal of metadata and data from imported data sets, processing results, and user-defined metadata and annotations. All of that is indexed and can be used in a Data View report . A Data View is a powerful custom report that can pull together metadata and data from across different groups, projects, subjects, or sessions. For example, you can analyze subject cohorts and related metadata attributes, aggregate numerical data generated by gears or other algorithms for use in group analysis, or aggregate data from timepoint exams in a longitudinal study to assess changes over time.
Site admins have the unique ability to create site templates. Site templates will automatically appear in each project. Users in that project can then run the report against their own project data to generate a data view– this allows you to standardize reporting throughout the site.
