From the CINDAS LLC archives comes the historically important film called The Anatomy of Data. This approximately 15 minute long video describes the need for critically evaluated data, and the process by which CINDAS at Purdue University painstakingly analyzed and synthesized data curves on thousands of materials. The importance of having data with a pedigree is explained.
