For the first time, the economic benefit of digitising a museum collection has been quantified. The National History Museum in London holds 80 million objects. Digitising these objects would contribute to biodiversity research, the study of invasive species and the safeguarding of agricultural crops. In the end, it could contribute over £2 billion to the economy.
