The cards in crops page are currently illustrated with in-house made icons. We've been adding crops, for which we do not have icons (https://sandbox.genesys-pgr.org/c/). A solution for this is using open access and botanically identified pictures.
We will use the existing file repository and upload multiple images (at least one) per crop in folders like
/crops/banana/cover. The file repository supports all metadata elements required to attribute the source properly.
- Internal Crop Trust repositories can provide many of these pictures.
- wikimedia commons can be used as source (e.g., African spider plant: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Cleome_gynandra).
- iNaturalist (e.g., Cowpea: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/13397511). This site contains botanically verified images with open access licenses and maintains a REST API.
We don't need a card design -- material UI already provides for that, see https://material-ui.com/demos/cards/#media
We need an updated server response that includes the image metadata: genesys-server#350 (closed)
