Lucid3 is an entirely new implementation of the Lucid family of products, providing new features requested by Lucid users and improving the handling of many common functions. Written in Java, Lucid3 is a cross-platform implementation, and will run on any Java-enabled operating system (such as Windows, Macintosh, Unix and Linux etc).
The Lucid3 system comprises a Builder and Player for creating and deploying effective and powerful identification and diagnostic keys. The Lucid3 Builder allows an expert in a group of entities (plants, animals, diseases, minerals, archaeological artifacts etc) to create a key that can be deployed over the World Wide Web.
Users who wish to identify an entity in the group for which the key has been built can "describe" their specimen to the key by choosing features that match the specimen. The key progressively eliminates entities that do not match the chosen features until only one or a few remain - multimedia fact sheets and images provide further information for making an identification.
