We report on a neuroimaging informatics knowledge environment recently expanded from MR to PET, EEG, MEG, SPECT, CT and optical neuroimaging tools and resources: Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC). Funded by the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, NIBIB, NIDA, NIMH, and NINDS, NITRC fosters a user-friendly clearinghouse environment for the neuroimaging informatics community. NITRC’s goal is to support researchers dedicated to enhancing, adopting, distributing, and contributing to the evolution of previously funded neuroimaging analysis tools and resources for broader community use. Located at, NITRC promotes software tools, workflows, resources, vocabularies, test data, and now, pre-processed, community-generated data sets (1000 Functional Connectomes, ADHD-200) through its Image Repository (NITRC-IR). NITRC gives researchers greater and more efficient access to the tools and resources they need; better categorizing and organizing existing tools and resources via a controlled vocabulary; facilitating interactions between researchers and developers through forums, direct email contact, ratings and reviews; and promoting better use through enhanced documentation. In Summary, NITRC facilitates access to a growing number of neuroimaging tools and resources (~450), and supports (~1 mil. hits monthly by ~142,750 unique visitors, initiating ~450,000 downloads). NITRC has established itself as a key resource for the advancement of neuroimaging research.

Nitrc is a useful - and even necessary resource for many.
