In many regions of the world, more than 75% of the population has a smartphone. Consequently, with the technological advancements in smartphone photography, most people have a very good camera within easy reach. For botanic gardens, it is without doubt that historic images and contemporary photographs both hold vital information and purpose.
With more seamless image capture and management workflows, there is certainly a lot of potential to increase the usefulness of photographs in plant collections. Luckily there are new technology and software development techniques that can help us make this process easier.
In botanic gardens and collection management, we often find that fruitful collaboration can play a vital role in the garden’s pursuit to reach its goals.
