Powdermill's Entomologist Andrea Kautz attended the Entomological Society of America's annual meeting for the North Central Branch in Cleveland, OH to present a poster (below) on www.macroinvertebrates.org project.
Being a meeting full of entomologists, many enthusiastic visitors dropped by her poster. Some were interested in aquatic entomology, while others were interested in gigapixel image technology and how it may apply to their area of study. The project received some positive feedback on the layout and functionality of the website, as well as suggestions for improvements such as iincluding aquatic macro collection protocols, or instructional videos, for a more complete teaching and learning package.
Few people seem to be aware that imaging technology has come this far, and are very impressed at what we are able to achieve!
