STC is equipped with a professional photographic workstation to respond to the needs and requirements of geologists. In addition to traditional white light photography, photos can also be taken under ultraviolet light. Photographic images can be consulted off-site via secured access.
The collections stored on the repository shelves are regulated by software that has been specifically designed for the management of geological samples. The software allows integration of photos and the export of Excel files, and is available for off-site consultation via secured access.
