Rapid 3D capture methods in biological collections and related fields

A report on existing and projected mass digitisation operations with a focus on capturing 3D data of specimens, and their associated 2D images of labels, on a large scale. The report will review alternative 3D model construction methods and address issues such as lighting setup, positioning of scanners, post-processing, etc. and make practical recommendations. Output of T3.2

State of the art and perspectives on mass imaging of pinned insects

A report containing a concise review of methods used to date for mass imaging of insects and of their performance and scalability; descriptions of novel approaches and their potential performance; and, where relevant, descriptions of results of pilot trials of novel techniques. The report aims to give recommendations on how to significantly improve the throughput by comparing current practice results with trials and outlook of added (new) technology. Output of T3.1.2

Quality control methodology for digitization operations

A report on the quality control methodologies, and associated best practice workflows and tools for different collection types to be applied during and after the imaging process. Output of T3.4
