The FSC Identikit

The FSC Identikit is a framework for creating online biological identification keys and related resources. The genesis of the project was the Field Studies Council's (FSC) Tomorrow's Biodiversity project (funded by Esmée Fairbairn 2013-2017 inclusive). Esmée Fairbairn funded a further year's development of the Identikit (covering 2018) to facilitate rolling the work forward into the HLF-funded FSC BioLinks project which runs from 2018 to 2022 inclusive. The Field Studies Council is a UK-based environmental education charity. We are committed to moving FSC Identikit forward as an open-source collaborative venture.

(Prior to March 2018, The FSC Identikit was referred to as 'The Tom.bio ID Visualisation Framework', or variations thereof.)
