Approximately 350,000 specimen labels make up Yale University’s Herbarium collection. The labels are highly unstructured and contain cursive handwriting, some of which dates back 160 years. Yale wanted to make the information computer-accessible while creating significant efficiencies. By capturing data from specimen labels, A2iA DocumentReader enables easy and efficient electronic search and view of the archives. It unlocks valuable cursive handwritten information, previously unavailable in electronic form, for scientists, researchers and educators worldwide.
