  • “ To set up the means, tools and infrastructure to produce a more rational and a more effective framework for European Biodiversity research”
  • Linking standards

    1. 1. Linking standards: Core taxonomic information and rich collection data Walter Berendsohn Botanic Garden & Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem; w.berendsohn@bgbm.org Workpackage IV Standardisation ViBRANT Virtual Biodiversity
    2. 2. Who we are & what we do <ul><li>Dept. of Biodiversity Informatics and Laboratories at the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem </li></ul><ul><li>20 years of experience, focusing on </li></ul><ul><li>Taxonomic information systems supporting the full range of data items for nomenclature, taxonomic concepts and associated taxonomic information </li></ul><ul><li>Networking of biological collection data and primary species occurrence data </li></ul><ul><li>and in this context: international cooperation in standard development, software development (protocols and systems), community building, networking, and help-desk activities. </li></ul> of 5
    3. 3. What we will do in ViBRANT WP IV and how (1) <ul><li>1. Service interface between standard Scratchpads and EDIT CDM (Common Data Model) stores. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Interface between WikiMedia and EDIT CDM store. </li></ul><ul><li>M4-8: Specification of service interfaces (including GUIDs for shared data objects) M6: Scratchpad Service Layer methods in CDM Store = MS 4.10 , M8: Specs documented on web] </li></ul><ul><li>M7-12: Scratchpad/CDM-Store [= D4.1] and WikiMedia/CDM-Store prototype interface implementation M12: Functional demonstrators </li></ul><ul><li>M13-36: Continuous enrichment of demonstrators M15: CDM API = MS 4.15 . M24: Interface implemented into standard setups and documented. M36: Final production version available </li></ul> of 5
    4. 4. What we will do in ViBRANT WP IV and how (2) <ul><li>3. Interfacing rich natural history collection data with the ViBRANT environment (Scratchpads, WikiMedia, GBIF) </li></ul><ul><li>M1-18: Transformation of ABCD (-DNA, -EFG) into an ontology offering reusable concepts and explicitly defined relations between concepts. M18: ABCD Ontology available </li></ul><ul><li>M19-36: (In Cooperation with GBIF) Specification of appropriate DwC-Archive sub-schemas to realize the full potential of highly granular and structured collection data in ViBRANT. M36: sub-schemas available and registered with GBIF </li></ul> of 5
    5. 5. Who are our users & how will they engage? <ul><li>The (scientific and general) public through the results of the achieved higher integration of web-based biodiversity information systems </li></ul><ul><li>Taxonomists via the Scratchpads, MediaWiki, the EDIT Platform, and GBIF/BioCASE </li></ul><ul><li>Taxonomic application developers via the EDIT Platform library </li></ul><ul><li>Collection holders via the BioCASE and GBIF networks through the activities of ViBRANT, SYNTHESYS, OpenUp! etc. </li></ul> of 5
