ICEDIG – glimpse on the diversity of European collections:
Take part in a European wide experiment and help us discover the best methods to unlock the information stored within herbarium sheets.
The ICEDIG project, “innovation and consolidation for large scale digitisation of natural heritage”, is funded by the European Union and aims to address many of the challenges that lie ahead to enable the mass digitisation of more than one billion specimens of natural history collections across Europe.
We need your help! We are experimenting with transcription on different crowdsourcing platforms using specimens from different herbaria, from many countries, written in many different languages. Help us try and discover if and why some specimens are harder to transcribe than others.
If you like variety in your transcriptions, then this is the challenge for you. Happy transcribing!
