Developing Robust Object to Image to Data (DROID3)
3D Objects and Things in Spirits Digitization Workflows Working Group
Various preparation-specific working groups were spawned from the DROID workshop (https://www.idigbio.org/content/digitization-workflow-workshop-report) held in Gainesville, Florida in May 2012. The purpose of this workshop was an exploration of digitization workflows and methods for improving workflow efficiency across preparation types. The DROID 3 working group, called 3D Objects and Things in Spirits, is focused on three dimensional objects, whether stored wet or dry, to include a variety of biological and paleontological preparations. The working group will publish the results of its work on the iDigBio documentation pages, accessed via https://www.idigbio.org/tags/documentation, or directly at https://www.idigbio.org/content/workflow-modules-and-task-lists.
This working will focus on developing digitization workflows for three dimensional specimens stored dry or in fluids.
