Big Data at ACIS
ACIS is doing big things with Big Data. One such project, titled Integrated Digitized Biocollections (iDigBio) was recently featured in the Summer edition of the UF Explore magazine. Researchers at UF's ACIS lab, the Florida Museum of Natural History, and Florida State University are in their 3rd year of a 10-year, $12 million effort to digitize the biological specimens in museum collections across the country. Currently there are over 14 million specimen records and over 2 million images available online, accessible from a search portal developed by the ACIS lab.
