"LucID Professional" is a powerful but simple system that lets you construct and view interactive identification keys to almost anything. The Windows-based programme consists of two modules: the LucID Builder, which allows researchers and other users to design and build their own identification keys for any group of organisms or array of material; and the LucID Player, which allows interactive use of those identification keys. LucID Professional is a research, decision-support and educational tool that is easy to use but includes many powerful features. The LucID Player can act as an identification key to items held in its data files, but it can also provide information about the item once it has been identified. This information comes in the form of text, audio files, photographs or video clips. The LucID Builder enables you to construct these powerful interactive keys and to incorporate related multimedia information. Features of the book include: identification is easy - start with any character; the point-and-click interface is elegant and straightforward; images, videos and sounds can be included; states are coded as common or rare, and misinterpretations are allowed for; discrete character data and continuous numeric data are supported; "Best" can be asked for the optimum route to identification; related subkeys can be loaded from the main key; errors can be tolerated and set to your requirements; material within keys can be compared for similarities and differences; remaining possible answers are ranked according to their probability of being correct; and keys can be created in languages other than English.
