While more than 3 million botanical specimens exist in Texas herbaria, only a small fraction of these are digitally accessible for observation or inclusion in scientific studies. Producing images of these specimens is the first step in liberating these data; the second step is engaging our citizen science community to help us extract the label information from these images. Bring your computer and join us as we participate alongside organizations around the globe in the Annual Worldwide Engagement in Digitizing Biocollections (WeDigBio) event. We will be extracting data from historical Texas specimens and doing some virtual botanizing!
