Setting the agenda for ViBRANT WP4 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. WP4 Standards meeting: setting the agenda Vince Smith Natural History Museum, London [email_address] ViBRANT Virtual Biodiversity
  • 2. Background to WP4 Overarching objectives & vision
    • Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets
    • Provide management and dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies
    • Provide biologists with the necessary flexibility to express their knowledge regardless of whether the terminology has been standardized yet or not. API service
    15 Our job is to clarify what this means…

  • 4. 1. Untangling WP4 objectives Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets i.e. linking up the Scratchpad archipelago How do we do this? Sites: 200+ Users: 2340+ Pages: 205k Circa 2 new sites/wk. Since Mar. ‘07 10% access per mnth 40% accessed per mnth 15
  • 5. Options for linking up the Scratchpads
    • Search
      • Planned via Apache Lucene in WP2 (issues for distributed servers)
    • A registry listing all the Scratchpads
      • Planned in WP2 (several options for doing this)
    • Integrating data
      • Planned in WP4 via the CDM
    A key objective of this meeting is to detail options for the registry & the CDM 1. Untangling WP4 objectives Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets 15
  • 6. Associated deliverables: D4.1) Scratchpad common access point: Develop an initial set of API services to link the Scratchpad communities to the resources of the CDM, to facilitate data exchange. [month 12] - NB Too early D4.3) Ongoing services enhancements: Develop robust services, based on usage statistics and user feedback, that enhance the prototype tools delivered under D4.1 & D4.2 [month 36] 1. Untangling WP4 objectives Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets 15

    • Provide biologists with the necessary flexibility to express their knowledge regardless of whether the terminology has been standardized yet or not. API service
    Our job is to clarify what this means… 15
  • 8. 2. Untangling WP4 objectives Provide mang. & dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies i.e. providing a more standardised approach to vocabularies Controlled vocabularies in a Scratchpad How do we get people to share these lists? 15
  • 9. Initial approach to sharing vocabularies in WP4
    • Explore needs
      • Ongoing via GBIF
    • Develop prototypes
      • Being planned by GBIF (DR) now
    • Embed vocabularies into Scratchpads
      • Need to work out the details
    2. Untangling WP4 objectives Provide mang. & dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies 15
  • 10. Associated deliverables: D4.2) Ontology tools: Develop the GBIF ontology tool and produce an equivalent tool based on a semantic wiki. Deliver a single user interface for ontology creation and editing based on user-acceptance of the alternative technologies. [month 24] D4.3) Ongoing services enhancements: Develop robust services, based on usage statistics and user feedback, that enhance the prototype tools delivered under D4.1 & D4.2 [month 36] 2. Untangling WP4 objectives Provide mang. & dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies 15
  • 11. Background to WP4 Overarching objectives & vision
    • Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets
    • Provide management and dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies
    • Provide biologists with the necessary flexibility to express their knowledge regardless of whether the terminology has been standardized yet or not. API service
    Our job is to clarify what this means… 15
  • 12. 3. Untangling WP4 objectives Flexible service to express knowledge regardless of whether terminology has been standardized i.e. wiki-based system for managing ontologies Need to clarify? 15 Controlled anatomical vocabularies
  • 13. Demonstrate and deploy the advantages of Semantic Mediawiki as a base layer for vocabulary management Controlled per site Controlled across sites Demonstrators via 1. Wiki, 2. Semantic wikii Now ViBRANT Post ViBRANT 3. Untangling WP4 objectives Flexible service to express knowledge regardless of whether terminology has been standardized 15
