Herbarium databases involve bulk data and image capture, creating lists and labels, updating annotations, managing transactions such as loans. BRAHMS encourages the use of herbarium data to catalyse research initiatives.
Manage herbaria small and large. The largest single database has over 5 million specimen records.
Networked access allows multiple users to add and edit data simultaneously.
Store data for any registered category of specimen, herbarium sheets, spirit material, DNA samples, xylarium, etc. Store one to many physical specimens per collection.
Add project specific fields to your database structure if these are not included by default.
Each specimen may have one to many determinations, an accession number and/or barcode, type status and specimen level notes.
Link images to specimens (physical image files or media library URLs).
Design reporting templates for lists, loan forms, labels and determination slips.
Optimize specimen data capture using the tried and tested Rapid Data Entry module.
Import specimen data donated from other databases and websites.
Use specimen data to develop checklists and analyse diversity for differently scaled areas.
Map geo-referenced collections to show distribution by species or any other queried dataset.
