AbstractThe Apiary Project: combining OCR technology, OCR output from herbarium specimen or other images containing museum specimen data, well-developed regular expressions for parsing output to Darwin Core fields, and humans-in-the-digitization-loop for an elegant, sophisticated user-interface for a workflow designed to maximize the value of the human interaction, minimize steps, and speed data throughput.
