Samples Repository ceiling mounted camera system
The Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center’s Samples Repository provides space and services for processing and sampling of materials and collections. Sample photography uses a Nikon1 D90 SLR camera mounted to the ceiling directly above the layout table in the sample preparation area. This camera is connected to a designated computer workstation and can be controlled using Nikon1 software Camera Control Pro 2. Photographs are directly downloaded to this workstation, and can be edited, spliced together and incorporated into the open source data visualization software suite CoreWall, which combines core photographs, descriptions, and derived analytical data.
