I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Support plates

    In older literature plates (illustrations) may occur at theendof a paper (or the end of the volume) after the regular pagination. Need a way to store information about plate.

    • Make taxonomic coverage link to articles

      When you get to the end of the taxonomic tree it shows 1,2,3 or whatever references, but no link to the actual references. (On safari anyway). Suggest adding it (possibly higher taxa too) as a side-table as you browse.

      • Have the viewer include an image zoom like the BHL site

        Having the ability to zoom in the item's page to make it more readable would be nice. You might need a slightly wider view for that as it would be nice to have the whole page fit horizontally, but still be easily readable. Would be nice, though, to keep it within the clean design you've created.

          Yes, absolutely need something like this. For now I just open the image in a new window if I need to look at it. One option would be a lightbox-style approach (I already use this to look at Reference Finder search results). I do like the idea of keeping the image within the bounds of the current viewer.

        • Be able to search for codens and indications of type material

          For example in the following text (from http://phasmid-study-group.org/content/Catalogue-type-material-insect-order-Phasmatodea-deposited-Museum-fiir-Tierkunde-Dresden-Ger) you would be able to find that SMTD has a holotype of acheola

          acheloa Gunther, 1940a: 496 fig. 19 [Libethra] [9, Rio Tacana.] SMTD [27] HT: Female, Tacana, Brasilien, Waehl1er leg., Y. preto, S. Waehner leg.; 1939 I [Rugosolibethra acheloa (Gunther, 1940)]

            I’m planning to do something like this. Initially I’ll look at extracting specimen codes (which include museum codes), mainly because I’m interested in citation of museum specimens, but also because if the specimens are georeferenced we can then georeference taxa and publications about those taxa.

            • Add RDF export

              Add RDF export option, using vocabularies such as Dublin Core, Bibio, and PRISM.
