Researcher in the project: Exploitation of digital collection data: A pilot study in the mammal collection

Within the DFG-LIS funded project “exploitation of digital collection data” the digital collection data of the mammal collection are standardised in terms of their taxonomic and geographical information. One aim of the project is to allow georeferencing of the specimens locations. Further aims are the development and implementation of common transfer tools to achieve data migration to open-access databases as for example BioCASE and GBIF. This will allow external information retrievals of collection data and thus will open new perspectives for the scientific exploration of collections.
