***There are three data sets, that is, three different sets of images of museum specimen labels. Participants, working alone or in groups, may work on one or more data sets as they choose. The sets have been ranked, easy, medium, hard, as an estimate of how difficult it might be to successfully get good parsed data from the OCR output from each data set.
