Preserving and Digitizing Plant Images:

Linking Plant Images and Databases for Public Access

Completed November 2000

Image Database

The Missouri Botanical Garden has developed an image database application that can be downloaded and installed on your computer or web server. This application stores information about each image in your collection in an Access database and uses scripts to retrieve and display the information through a web browser. The database contains 15 fields which correspond to the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set, Version 1.1 (see http://purl.org/dc/documents/rec-dces-19990702.htm) and 2 additional fields describing the image's width and height.

System Requirements:

You can view a demonstration of the application by clicking here.
