Specify Insight for iPad (2+) distils the contents of a collection catalogue database into a data browsing and image discovery app. It highlights the holdings of a collection with gesture-based queries, maps and image browsing, and of course the traditional tabular display of collection object data. Specify Insight is an exceptional tool for curators, directors, institution presidents, provosts, and ministers of science to carry and showcase institutional holdings in settings and professional circles beyond the usual collections data channels. Specify Insight is written in Objective-C, open source licensed and obtainable from the Apple store.
Other novelties to be demonstrated will include updated capabilities of the Specify Web Portal for publishing collections to the web, Specify image attachment handling, and other recent enhancements. |
