Subject: [ebc-zooeco] Insect wing images needed

I have lost a large amount of time and energy in manually putting a
landmarks on thousands of Drosophila wings in order to perform some
geometric morphometry analysis. I am sure that I have sympathy of some
of you who are experiencing the same.
Recently I made collaboration with colleagues from IT Department
(Uppsala University) with an aim to make that boring process
automatized. Now, I am happy inform you that we are approaching the
final phase in software development and that hopefully will enable us to
perform landmarking automatically.
I am writing to you because I need your assistance. *I would very much
appreciate if you have some good quality images (tiff or jpeg) of insect
wings to share with me- so I can try to analyze the applicability of
software across different insect species *(and not only Drosophila).
Looking forward to receive the material and thanks in advance!
