Big Data on Small Things

So, for all of you botanists and entomologists out there (you know who you are), here is the large communal database that was talked of while we were in the small library conference room:

Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF)http://www.gbif.org/

And, if you are interested in seeing the 3D imaging and reconstruction of insects, it is a service being marketed by CSIRO (https://www.csiro.au/en/Research/D61/Areas/Imaging-and-visualisation/Quantitative-imaging/Bug-scanning) complete with a proof of concept published in PLOS One (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0094346).
