DARWIN is a software system which allows marine scientists to
maintain information for the study of various behavioral and
ecological patterns of bottlenose dolphins, Tursiops truncatus.
The software provides a graphical user interface to access a collection
of digital dorsal fin images along with textual information which describes
individual animals as well as relevant sighting data. Users may
query the system with the name of a specific individual or the
entire collection may be sorted and viewed based upon sighting
location, sighting date, or damage category. Alternatively, the
researcher may query a database of previously identified dolphin dorsal
fin images with an image of an unidentified dolphin's fin. DARWIN
responds with a rank ordered list of database fin images that most
closely resemble the query image.

Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /opt/apache/darwin/index.php on line 122
