GeoSpecify Project

The Specify Collections Consortium (SCC) announces a new initiative to extend the Specify specimen data management platform to the earth sciences, to add support for geoscience museum collections of rocks, minerals, meteorites, gemstones, and related collection object types. We will extend the open-source Specify 7 web platform to include the data concepts, collection business logic, and interface customizations needed for managing geocollection data. Along with the SCC, the collaboration is co-led by the Swiss Natural History Museums of Bern, Basel, and Geneva, along with the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (NCMNS). The effort is funded by a grant from the Swiss Natural History Collections Network (SwissCollNet), a program of the Swiss Academy of Sciences.
