Herbarium digistreet set-up
Digitising the specimens is performed using Picturae's high-tech conveyor belt system known as the 'herbarium digistreet' and it has come all the way from the Netherlands. Here is a timelapse of the team setting up the herbarium digistreet at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney in April, 2019.
