Natural History Museum (UK): Critical data from millions of insect specimens to be unlocked through cutting-edge 3D imaging technology

Natural History Museum (UK): Critical data from millions of insect specimens to be unlocked through cutting-edge 3D imaging technology. “Over 1.6 million of the Museum’s 35 million insects have already been digitised using 2D photography. These specimens have had their images and collections data (information about where in time and space they were collected and what species they are) made available to the public via the Museum’s Data Portal. However, this landmark project is expected to provide valuable new insights and information by providing the beginnings of a high-resolution 3D dataset for all living and fossil insects and their close relatives.”
