(4) Recent research projects
The aim of the project is to digitize and make available on-line the resources of Pomeranian herbaria. Following the implementation of the project, the costs of access to the resources of herbaria will be reduced and access to the achievements of Polish researchers will improve. One of the goals is to provide on-line information on the resources of herbaria for public services and entities dealing with environmental resources management. As a result of the project, 468,000 specimens will be digitized and made available on the Internet, which will enable all stakeholders to access Herbarium Pomeranicum resources from any device. Access to the resources of Herbarium Pomeranicum will be immediate, and the ability to filter search results will completely eliminate the time-consuming query procedure performed in the traditional form.
eCUDO.pl (Oceanographic Data and Information System)
The eCUDO project aims to launch the potential of oceanographic data that are collected during monitoring and scientific research carried out by project partners. The results of these observations are cataloged in a transparent and publicly accessible database. Integrating and centralizing this data will replace the current system that requires customers to browse separate IT systems or order personalized expert analyzes.
