TDWG 2014 IV Report

This wiki supports the BIS(TDWG) 2014 Symposium: Access to Digitisation Tools and Methods, Jönköping, Sweden, October 27th, 2014.

This broad digitisation symposium included three sessions, covering different elements of digitisation. The key focus was to cover the developments that are occurring in digitisation but with a strong emphasis on the accessibility of tools and protocols (think open access, open source).

Examples of topics include tools for data/metadata capture and enrichment such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR), text mining, Natural Handwriting Recognition (NHR), Natural Language Processing (NLP), their availability and how they are being adopted and adapted. How are these tools being used currently, and how can we ensure that they are accessible to all? In addition, what are the tools in use for image capture and management, quality control and long-term preservation of images? What techniques are in use by many institutes, who are capturing images of their natural history collections and related objects like field notebooks, illustrations, labels, card catalogs, journals, and literature?
