We are excited to announce the return of our popular professional development opportunity: Public Participation in Digitization of Biodiversity Collections.

This free online course is focused on public participation in science as it relates to digitization and research using biodiversity specimens. Public participation in science is sometimes referred to as citizen science, community science, or crowdsourcing.

Introduction to Photogrammetry for Biodiversity Specimen Collectors and Curators

We are excited to introduce the next professional development opportunity from iDigBio's Digitization Academy: a short, free, online course on photogrammetry.  Photogrammetry is a method that can produce 3D models of organisms and their habitat for innovative use in research, education, science communication, and other activities.  This course introduces biodiversity specimen collectors, curators, and other biodiversity researchers to photogrammetry with special, though not exclusive, emphasis on the documentation of specimens at the time of collection.
