The National Repository for Laryngeal Data is an archive of laryngeal data. It is designed to quickly disseminate laryngeal images, models, and descriptions to the scientific community. The goal is to give researchers involved in laryngeal modeling the ability to quickly compare and validate their work with others in the field.
Data (including tutorials, laryngeal images, virtual CAD models) are presented in terms of numbered Monographs or Technical Notes so that references can be made in peer reviewed publications. Technical Notes can be updated with time stamps and new variations of data and models can be uploaded and tagged to previous versions. Further, because the archive is formatted as a blog, comments and discussions can be made about existing content.
