Suppose n=(p1^e1)(p2^e2)... where p1,p2,... are the prime numbers and e1,e2,... are nonnegative integers. Then a(n) = e1 + (e2)*4 + (e3)*16 + (e4)*64 + ... + (ek)*(4^(k1)) + ...

COMMENTS

Replace "4" with "x" and extend the definition of a to positive rationals and a becomes an isomorphism between positive rationals under multiplication and polynomials over Z under addition. This remark generalizes A001222, A048675 and A054841: evaluate said polynomial at x=1, x=2 and x=10, respectively.
