  4. 4. Use Case: Notify people interested in a collecting event that identifications have been made (Biocode Event) (Essig Museum Specimen) (Smithsonian Tissue) (Bishop Museum Tissue) (Genbank Sequence) (BOLD Barcode) (Key/Person) (Blast) (Taxon) (Taxon) (Blast) (Taxon)
  5. 5. Use Case: For Taxon X, find specimens with recent modification dates for image or tissue samples. (Identification) (Taxon) DateLastModified “ 2011-06-01” DateLastModified “ 2011-06-20” (Bishop Museum Tissue) (CalPhotos Image) (Essig Museum Specimen)
  6. 6. Use Case: Map all place names/localities associated with Taxon X (Specimen) (Identification) (Location) (Specimen) (Location) (Taxon) (Identification)
  7. 7. Use Case: Provide collection permit information and use restrictions on tissue samples from SpecimenX (Bishop Museum Tissue) (Smithsonian Tissue) (Collecting Permit) (Essig Specimen) (Biocode Event)

  9. 9. Creating Globally Unique Identifiers (GUIDs) <ul><li>Globally unique (mandatory) </li></ul><ul><li>Persistent (not mandatory, but very helpful) </li></ul><ul><li>Resolvable (not mandatory, but very helpful) </li></ul>+1-541-914-4739 (Unique, at least for phones) Resolution/Domain + Identifier JDeckSpecimen1 (A named identifier) Examples: 7217D220-836A-11DF-8395-0800200C9A66 (opaque)
  10. 10. BiSciCol Implementation of the Resource Description Framework (RDF) An RDF Statement: Subject Object Predicate relatedTo (Transitive): relatedTo GUID1 GUID2 GUID3 relatedTo GUID1 <-> GUID2 GUID2 <-> GUID3 GUID1 <-> GUID3 OR Predicate GUID1 GUID2 A Simple BiSciCol Graph (graph=set of RDF Statements): relatedTo a a Date Date GUID1 GUID2 GUID3 relatedTo Event “ 2011-06-20” “ 2011-05-01” Tissue “ 2011-06-01” Specimen a Date
  11. 11. Combining Graphs A set of institutions we are interested in SPARQL Query language for RDF queries multiple graphs XML (Graph) (Graph) N3/Turtle (Graph) Web Page Tags (RDFa/Microformats)
  12. 12. BiSciCol / Global Names Architecture Integration Building a framework for linking taxon concepts to GUIDs Linking Occurrences to Taxons GUID3 (Taxon) GUID2 (Identification Key/Person/ Blast) GUID1 (Occurrence) relatedTo relatedTo The Global Names Architecture is a BiSciCol partner that is creating resolvable Identifiers for all taxons through its global names usage bank service (GNUB). Linking Taxons to GNUB grants us search capabilities for taxon names across all systems. Taxon = defined by Darwin Core Taxon Class GUID3 (Taxon) Linking Taxons to Taxons (e.g. GNUB to myAuthority) relatedTo GUID1 (Identification) GUID2 (Taxon) relatedTo GUID4 (Identification) relatedTo
  13. 13. Tools & Potential Tools in Development <ul><ul><li>What the BiSciCol Application Does </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Online search interface </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Alert system </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Annotation Network Service </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. What the BiSciCol Application Does Search Service Map Service BiSciCol Application (Java) Internet SPARQL Model Class Combine graph query results into a single graph (model) Object Class Work with graph results in memory (Ancestors, Siblings, Descendants) Render Class Provides image/text representation of results RDFa web tags (indexer -> graph) XML (Graph) (Graph) N3/Turtle (Graph)
  15. 15. Online Search Interface Demonstration
  16. 16. Alert System (Proposed) RSS Feed, Emails, etc.. Application to store identifiers 1) User X stores objects: JDeckSpecmen1 JDeckEvent1,etc.. 2) Schedules Jobs 3) Runs Queries Recent Changes New identifications Services BiSciCol Application Discovers/ Traverses Relationships XML (Graph) (Graph) N3/Turtle (Graph)
  17. 17. Annotation Network Service (Proposed) Facilitating Feedback from Third Parties Generate annotation & Store in a service Relate AnnotationGUID To Specimen GUID Now discoverable and Linked into BiSciCol
