Chinese Medicinal Material Images Database (CMMID) documents photographs of and detailed information about over 420 crude drugs commonly used in Chinese medicine and is linked to the Medicinal Plant Images Database (MPID) which was set up by the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM), Hong Kong Baptist University.
The CMMID serves as an important teaching and learning platform for the subjects of Chinese materia medica and authentification of Chinese materia medica. A simple search function facilitates quick access to records containing annotated, high quality photographs and detailed drug information, including source, origins, description, quality, taste and clinical indications. There are also illustrations of selected microstructures of the drugs.
