Daniel Markbreiter is a paleontology collections manager turned software developer who is passionate about making natural history collections accessible to the public.
Daniel Markbreiter will be speaking at the Digital Exhibitions Summit 2023:
Connecting Collections with Communities, the SoCal Fossil Map
How do you take millions of museum specimens and not only make them accessible to the public but make that process fun? By allowing people to see what a nearby museum has found in their area, personal connections can be made with individual specimens and museum collections at large. For NHMLAC’s most recent exhibit, LA Underwater, a map based digital interactive allows visitors to make discoveries about the fossils in their own backyards.
