La numérisation assure la préservation physique des collections, en évitant manipulations et envois des specimens, tout en assurant le partage de celles-ci, via le web. La haute résolution et le traitement spécifique des images du système Anthos permettent l'examen détaillé et aisé des specimens ainsi que leur annotation. La base de données associée offre de multiples possibilités de recherche. ANTHoS doit ses incroyables images haute résolution au projet ANTHoScan qui a fourni un scanner inversé permettant de traiter des planches d'herbier fragiles.
