LightningBug workflow can be viewed as six parts.
Curate specimens before and after imaging (i.e., pre-curation and post-curation).
OCR/HCR virtual labels and connect to structured text extraction services
Develop hardware and software platform to capture multi-view imagery of both labels and specimens.
Apply photogrammetric analysis to assemble the 3D shape and structure of specimens.
Build robust algorithms to automatically process fragmentary views of multiple labels into separate integrated “virtual labels".
Provide research-ready data. Labels become records and shared with GBIF. Images stored & served from MorphoSource
