Despite being a hotspot of botanical research for more than 100 years, the Chinese province of Heilongjiang is only represented by about 2,000 specimens in GBIF—out of an estimated 150,000 specimens available.

This project will develop a workflow for processing specimen metadata to promote digitization and data cleaning in Heilongjiang. The project team will demonstrate the efficiency and reliability of the workflow on about 50,000 specimen records available at the Northeast Forestry University.

Following this initial exercise, the workflow will be expanded to clean up all specimens located in Heilongjiang Province and complete the Heilongjiang Digital Herbarium and Online Flora.
