Linking standards

  1. 1. Linking standards: Core taxonomic information and rich collection data Walter Berendsohn Botanic Garden & Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem; 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 .
