BiNHum

Timeframe: 
December, 2012 to June, 2013
Description: 

BiNHum is a joint project of five natural history museums and research collections representing the Humboldt-Ring. These are the State Museums of Natural History Karlsruhe and Stuttgart, the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig in Bonn, the Bavarian Natural History Collections in Munich, and the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem. The three-year project (2012-2015) will enforce collaboration and consolidate collection data of the Humboldt-Ring institutes and their associates by development of a joint data portal and efforts in data mining, standardisation, new data types as 3D images e.g., or data digitized by the sub-project MORPHYLL at the SMNS (DFG support code RO 3250/21, acquisition of ecophysiologically relevant morphometric data of fossil leaves), and data porting to current IT standards. Additionally, the portal will provide all accessible data to international projects as GBIF.
