ECOTAXA is a web based application which permits to efficiently classify images of organisms using a reference taxonomy (http://unieuk.org/). The images, associated metadata and descriptive variables are loaded for each organism and permit to predict the identification (automatic classification). The registered users can then validate (check and perform a finer sorting) on the web by visualizing the classified images using an efficient interface. All operations are recorded to allow close control of the tasks. Ecotaxa hosts today more than 5000000 images acquired by different instruments and about 30% have been validated by experts which makes it the largest database of sorted images of plankton.
We offer to host your images in Ecotaxa and classify them.
