Inselect is an open-source application for Mac and Windows that can greatly simplify the challenges of dealing with images generated by museum digitization programmes.
The software combines image processing, barcode reading, batch processing and validation of user-defined metadata to offer a high level of automation. Inselect has been used by curators and digitizers within the Natural History Museum, London, to process in excess of 100,000 specimens so far and is presently being used by several institutions on pinned insects, microscope slides, paleontological specimens, dried sponges and other specimen types.
This webinar will give an overview of the software, how it can be integrated into existing workflows and a discussion of areas for development and possible future applications. The talk will be of interest to curators, digitizers and IT staff. Inselect is under active development - we are very excited to engage with the community and receive feedback and ideas.
