  • narwhal-processor Goal Standardize data for optimal retrieval • Geography (continent, country, coordinates …) • Dates (different formats, partial dates) • Numerics (allowintervalsearch) • Scientificnames (atomize, aggregate)
  • 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
  • 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
  • Limulus polyphemus Kiwahirsuta Trypanosoma brucei Aa aleacea Homo sapiens Pieris rapae Pieris japponicaOsedax Bahumbugifrankpressi Kingiaaustralis
  • 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
  • A working solution • Inclusive – Accommodate alternate perspectives • Reconciliation – Map names among and between each other • Disambiguation – Context to assign homonymic names to rightful place
  • Current Activities
