Research Tools

I have developed a range of tools during the course of my research that are available for reuse.

Image Annotator beta 0.1

This PHP and Javascript based project is the main software behind Purple Octopus but will be bundled into a separate package that can be installed within another site. The XML annotation scheme will allow for importing and exporting data held on different systems. Due at the end of 2013.

Marine Taxonomy bulk checker

This tool allows researchers to check a bulk list of marine species names against an existing taxonomy. Whilst not particularly revolutionary it makes the task of ensuring you have the most up-to-date names in your marine research a lot easier.
