D.I.G.I.T.S. stands for Digital Image Gathering and Information Tracking System. This program was designed by the New England Aquarium to match and track photographs for individual identification of North Atlantic right whales. This software has proven to be invaluable for quickly matching new photographs of a particular whale to ones already in the database (if they are available) using the whale’s unique markings and scars. In addition, it is also used to assess the health of individual whales. Click on the link below to access the DIGITS right whale catalog.
