Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity Collections (NSF ADBC Program) Digitize 1 billion specimens in 10 years

Currently 9 Thematic Collection Networks with 130 participating institutions

SCAN digitization objectives

  • Digitize 1 million records for southwestern ground-dwelling arthropods
  • Produce 16,000 high-resolution images of species; promote identifications
  • Leverage an interactive identification & annotation workflow via Symbiota

Gerstaeckeriaporosa(LeConte, 1876) – ASUHIC0017017

Crotaniustrivittatus(Champion, 1908) – ASUHIC0012067

September, 2013: 510,262 records in SCAN

SCAN ADBC Collections

SCAN ADBC

Ground-Dwelling

Arthropod Records

  • 510,262 specimens in Symbiota
  • 300,984 (59%) georeferenced
  • 338,836 (66%) identified to species
  • 1,016 families
  • 8,056 genera
  • 17,538 species

SCAN ADBC

Non-Target Taxa

New FP Client Tools in Symbiota

  • New, remotely added identifications are grounded in the Annotation Ontology.
  • FP team has developed Symbiota-integrated PHP Client Tools that record and push new annotations to the external FP infrastructure where statistics are kept.

Image thumbnail gallery – some are insufficiently identified

ID = Epicaerus

ID = Scarabaeidae

slide13

Experts can log in and view a taxon-tailored IDs Needed tab

Occurrence tab

This is the scarab

in need of an ID

slide15

Adding a new identification in the Determination History tab

 Scientific Name is linked to the

SCAN Taxonomic Thesaurus.

slide16

The fully integrated Symbiota tab for IDs is Filtered Push-enabled

  • New = current ID
  • Image remapping
  • Submission to FP

Future work – 1st production-level Symbiota / FP implementation

  • Optimization of SCAN "IDs Needed" user interface – thumbnail view
  • Roll-out to the SCAN expert community, creation of expert profiles in FP
  • Expansion beyond SCAN members, diversified notification systems

"Curculionidae" ("Calles" sp.) – ASUHIC0031695
