Recently, before taking a well-deserved vacation, we sent the extensive herbarium collection of vascular plants back to Tromsø’s University Museum (Norway) with which we have been working at full capacity since January 2020. Tagging with unique identifiers and imaging resulted in a total of 204,000 images, about 22 terabytes of data.
It has been a very interesting process that has allowed us to enjoy beautiful specimens and to continue developing new processes and more effective ways of working through our mass-digitization system. At Bioshare Digitization we are constantly looking for more efficient ways of working while taking care of and respecting the specimens during their handling.
