|Title:||SuperIDR: A Tool for Fish Identification and Information Retrieval|
|Abstract:||Students, fisheries professionals, and the general public may value computer-facilitated assistance for fish identification and access to ecological and life history information. We developed SuperIDR, a software package supporting such applications, by utilizing the search and data retrieval capabilities of digital libraries, as well as key features of tablet PCs. We demonstrated SuperIDR utilizing a database with information on 207 freshwater fishes of Virginia. A user may annotate fish images and identify fishes by using a dichotomous key; searching for key words, similar images, subimages, or annotations on images; or combinations of these approaches. Students using the software demonstrated enhanced ability to correctly identify specimens. Their comments led to improvements, including the addition of new features. The PC-based system for identifying freshwater fishes of Virginia may be downloaded and modified. SuperIDR is a prototype for PC-based species identification applications-the system architecture and the open-source software that we developed are applicable to other fish faunas and to a broader range of species identification tasks.|
