Using Our Online Database


ARCTOS integrates with BerkeleyMapper, GenBank, and GoogleEarth. A DiGIR provider supplies various federated portals (e.g., GBIF). Ninety-three collections at UC Berkeley, University of Alaska Museum of the North, Denver Museum of Natural History, University of Wyoming, Western New Mexico University and the MSB share a multi-hosting version of ARCTOS. Independent clones are under development by the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology. ARCTOS is largely based on the Collections Information System at the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology.
