CitSciScribe was a digital transcription project of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. The application provided citizen scientists the opportunity to digitize hand-written collection cards and ledgers associated with orphaned collections acquired by the Museum.
Replaced in 2018, the goal of the NCSM Online Collections website was to provide valid, useful, rigorously processed data products to end users via a simple and efficient searching protocol. We achieved this using web-based search forms for each collection that returned six data products to the end user. The application was responsive to both large and small devices and compliant with section 508 accessibility guidelines. This web application was retired in early 2019. and replaced with the next generation NCSM Online Collections web application.
NCSM Species Mapper is an interactive data visualization and web mapping application that allows end users to map the georeferenced specimens in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences’ collections. An array of features and data layers are included to meet the needs of both researchers and educators.
