Notes from Nature/iDigBio Hackathon to Further Enable Public Participation in the Online Transcription of Biodiversity Specimen Labels

December 16–20 at the University of Florida, Gainesville

Development Resources

  • <a href="https://github.com/idigbio-citsci-hackathon">GitHub organization for this Transcription Hackathon</a>
  • 4 existing crowdsourcing datasets from Notes From Nature. Datasets contain transcriptions of different types of collections labels. Read more <a href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UCz5WblnNIvqBErX-XeWgS9mf69qFhycHqntQOGnPp4/edit?usp=sharing">here</a>. The datasets were shared only with the hackaton participants through dropbox once anonymized. It will be made public when we get a definitive approval from NfN.
    • Calbug dataset
    • Herbarium labels—The filenames with "USAM_" represent a nearly complete set of recent transcriptions from a collection (the University of South Alabama Herbarium), four replicates for most specimens (I think).
    • Macrofungi labels
    • Ornithological dataset
  • Existing solution datasets to assess quality of crowdsourcing consensus (we are working to get "gold standard" data for some of these:
    • Herbarium labels ideal response: link to be provided by Austin
    • Entomology labels ideal response: link to be provided by Austin
    • Field notebooks ideal response: link to be provided by Austin
  • For those interested in experimenting with the images that have been used for public participation in transcription:
    • Herbarium label images: the set of ca. 16,000 "USAM" images used for some of the herbarium transcriptions is available at <a href="http://www.specimenimaging.com/images/USAM/">USAM Herbarium Images</a>.
