Specimen Imaging Documentation

The documents below describe the technology and workflows used by the Consortium for imaging specimens at regional herbaria. They should be sufficient to replicate our setup elsewhere, although modifications may be required.

Multiple methods of imaging specimens exist. Our selection of equipment was determined by cost, ease of use, and efficiency. Likewise, there are multiple formats for archiving images and displaying these online, and the methods we use are not the only option.

A sample image captured using our setup is accessible here: http://www.pnwherbaria.org/portal/gmapviewer.php?Image=WTU000790. We use the image viewer created for the Rocky Mountain Herbarium's web site.
