Netha says: "In receiving help for doing this project, I will be able to acquire the skill sets required for batch uploading similar images from medical repositories. I maintain a list of open access medical repositories, and the skills I learn from doing the SMART SERVIER project will eventually be helpful for other content partnership programs, particularly those of which I have named in the repository.”
The SMART Servier collection contains uniformly styled elements that can be used in harmony to create flowcharts, diagrams, posters and other visual aids to illustrate complex biological processes and concepts. Some of the use cases are as follows:
To illustrate concepts where actual photographs are very hard or impossible to create, such as illustrating phenomena happening at the molecular or cellular level.
To illustrate concepts where using original photographs of body parts/organs would be disturbing (as in illustrating phenomena related to genital organs) or offensive (as in illustrating conditions such as obesity).
To illustrate concepts where a representative image of a person or an organ is more ideal than a real photograph, as in illustrating the method for measurement of arm circumference.
In projects where simple representations are preferred over complex diagrams or photos, such as in Simple Wikipedia or Wiktionary.
