NBN Crowdsourcing Data Capture Summit

Our delegate at the above conference was Martin Harvey.
The preliminary report is to be found at http://nbn.org.uk/News/Latest-news/NBN- … ober2015_2
It does have significance to us, there are many undigitised historical Diptera datasets that we know of, some of them are currently being processed by BRC (e.g. Steve Falk's records) but BRC have to find resources to do all the work.
There's an introduction to this system in
Sumner, D. 2014. Digitising Museum Collections. Bull. Dipterists Forum 77 p11
If you've any ideas for cases where this system might be of value to us, do reply to this thread
