This wiki supports DemoCamp at SPNHC 2015. The SPNHC 2015 DemoCamp is sponsored by iDigBio and organized by Rusty Russell.
DemoCamp provides a venue for promotion of technological solutions to advance the field of museum curation and specimen digitization, with broad applications for biology, ecology, and biodiversity informatics. Live demonstrations are welcomed in any technologies relevant to biologists, collections managers, or biodiversity information managers, as well as technologies that enable the broader use of data, or enable citizen scientist participation. Technologies demonstrated at past sessions have included collections/ transaction management software, georeferencing applications, robotic imaging equipment, automated label digitization tools, and programs for analysis of data/ images. DemoCamp presentations feature the latest developments in currently available products/ software/ applications/ tools as well as ongoing research projects and prototypes. DemoCamp sessions also provide a venue for idea exchange and feedback from potential users. --No powerpoints allowed!
