Lucid - the world's most successful interactive identification platform

Lucid is a suite of software applications for creating, maintaining, deploying and using interactive identification keys, mostly with biological applications. Lucid keys are used throughout the world by a wide range of people, to identify plants, insects and other animals, crop diseases etc. The Lucid system is highly accessible for users ranging from school students and farmers to expert taxonomists.

I developed the Lucid system, in collaboration with colleagues from the Centre for Biological Information Technology at the University of Queensland (now spun off as an independent company, Identic), in the mid-1990s. Several versions later, it remains the most widely used application of its type in the world.
