Researchers from the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences and the Royal Museum for Central Africa have created a manual for the digitization of natural science collections. And it can be done literally in fifty different ways, with fifty more nuances. A guide.
By digitizing museum pieces in 2D and / or 3D and publishing them online, they are made accessible to researchers around the world. Thanks to the high-resolution images, specimens no longer have to leave the museum's deposit with its ideal conservation conditions. In addition, they are not likely to be damaged by handling and transport.
