What we want...

​The "Digital Natural History Archive Darmstadt(DiNArDa) has set itself the task of archiving collections three-dimensionally digitally and making the archives accessible to the public via the Internet. Since there have not yet been any satisfactory, routine-suitable solutions for the digital modeling of insects, a new type of scanner (DISC3D) was developed and published as an open project ("open source"). We are further developing the scanner within our association - with the aim that it can be used at numerous locations in the future.


Our specific goals:

  • Structure of a Darmstadtcompetence center for the digitization of biodiversity

  • Digital archiving andpublicationfrom natural history collections

  • Development of digital and interactive learning concepts around the area biodiversity and insect mortality

  • Citizen Science Projects:Citizens create knowledge
