Brought on by the data visualization that will be created by Jessica Couture for the EVOS data synthesis.

1. Display image files in the data package
MertacatUI can scan the contents of a data package, pull out image files (and possibly PDFs) and display those images in the Metadata view. This is the simpler and easier option. This allows creators to interpret the data and use their preferred software to visualize it. This option will require a new revision of each dataset.

2. Read in tabular data and draw charts dynamically
MetacatUI can read the metadata for a tabular data file and try to interpret the format in order to draw a line chart, pie chart, etc. This would take a lot of work to make sure erroneous graphs aren't all over the place. It risks showing graphs that don't make any sense.
