Vascular plants

The vascular plant collection of the United Herbaria Z+ZT of the University (Z) and ETH Zurich (ZT) encompasses about 2.5 million objects, of which ca. 15% for a total of approximately 350,000 specimens have already been imaged and are publicly available on GBIF (see this short movie for a brief presentation of the institution). Metadata recording is, however, still very much incomplete.

This dataset was used in the following projects:

Label Recognition for Herbarium
GLAMhack 2022 Get

(14) Search batches of herbarium images for text entries related to the collector, collection or field trip

Living Herbarium
GLAMhack 2022 Clean

(2+6) Connecting the Herbarium to Wikidata around playful experiences and storytelling

All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the Hack Code of Conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to ensure a safe environment for everybody.
