iDigBio Image File Format Requirements and Recommendations

iDigBio’s mission requires that it be able to aggregate and distribute digital images of biological specimens, records, and other objects associated with specimens (e.g., labels and notes) generated by TCNs and other bio- and paleo-collections hosting institutions. Linked below is a document providing current iDigBio policy as well as recommendations for acquiring, processing, archiving, and distributing still, two-dimensional digital images. We recognize the importance of other image types, including three-dimensional images, and will expand this current policy through time as demand dictates.
