    11. 11. narwhal-processor Goal Standardize data for optimal retrieval • Geography (continent, country, coordinates …) • Dates (different formats, partial dates) • Numerics (allowintervalsearch) • Scientificnames (atomize, aggregate)
    12. 12. Geospatialstack Windshaft Mapnik 2.1 Postgis 2.0 • Nodejs • Map render • Handles TileServer • Used by complex • Made by OpenStreetMap geospatial Vizzuality and query OpenSource • Allow clustering
    13. 13. Integrate Publishing Toolkit 2.0.4 • http://code.google.com/p/gbif-providertoolkit/ • Permits management, administration, publishing of occurrence, checklist, metadata resources – Create metadata (Ecological Metadata Language, eml.xml) – Map resource to DarwinCore and optional extensions • Register resources with GBIF • RSS feed for changes (eg updates) in resources
    14. 14. Limulus polyphemus Kiwahirsuta Trypanosoma brucei Aa aleacea Homo sapiens Pieris rapae Pieris japponicaOsedax Bahumbugifrankpressi Kingiaaustralis
    15. 15. The problem with scientific names • No comprehensive catalog of species • Names ≠ species • The species problem – species concepts • Competing classifications / phylogenies • Many names for one taxon • One name for many taxa • ‘Names’ are more than code-compliant scientific names
    16. 16. A working solution • Inclusive – Accommodate alternate perspectives • Reconciliation – Map names among and between each other • Disambiguation – Context to assign homonymic names to rightful place
