Replying to postdoc AND the list since a) I don't follow instructions very well and b) this might be of general interest.

David Houle at FSU has an automated Drosophila wing landmarking system (hardware and software), and has placed a lot (30k+) images on the Morphbank server. For more info, see...


http://www.morphbank.net/

A search for "drosophila" brings up "31924 Images"

Dear colleagues,


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!

Kind regards

Zorana
