OMT is excited to announce the general release of the MorphoSource to iDigBio data pipeline.  This means that when you search Florida Museum data in the iDigBio portal, search results will now include our digitized specimens in MorphoSource. For an example, check out UF-Herp-11978 on the iDigBio portal.

The pipeline was a collaboration between MorphoSource, OMT, and iDigBio. MorphoSource developed an RSS feed to publish their data, while OMT developed software to consume the feed and integrate the data with IPT as an Audubon Core for iDigBio and other aggregators to harvest.

The pipeline had a soft launch with Herpetology over the summer of 2018 and is now connected for Vertebrate Paleontology, Mammalogy, and Paleobotany. If your range starts contributing Museum specimens to MorphoSource, just let OMT know and we can connect the pipeline for you as well.
