The objective of this thesis is to develop an automated 3D digitising and cataloguing platform for insects and plants. The specimen will be digitised into a 3D model and, through feature extraction, catalogued using an adaptive algorithm.

This project involves design of opto-mechanical equipment and the development of image processing software.
