Digital Atlas Analysis Workflow. In the first stage, a researcher searches and retrieves data to help answer the proposed question. The data can be of different types and from multiple sources. If necessary, the data is aligned to a common space, either to a template, such as an atlas, or to each other. In the next stage, the researcher compares and contrasts the data. A researcher can iteratively repeat this process as needed.
