    1. 1. INOTAXA markup and its relation to ViBRANT Chris Lyal Natural History Museum [email_address] Workpackage 7 Biodiversity literature access and data mining ViBRANT Virtual Biodiversity
    2. 2. taXMLit and INOTAXA <ul><li>Joint project with Anna Weitzman, Smithsonian Institution </li></ul><ul><li>Prior work with OU team in ABLE project </li></ul><ul><li>taXMLit </li></ul><ul><li>XML schema for taxonomic literature - atomised markup </li></ul><ul><li>covers complete papers, not just treatments </li></ul><ul><li>markup route via TEI-Lite+ / taXMLit-simple </li></ul><ul><li>INOTAXA - http://www.inotaxa.org </li></ul><ul><li>developed using user needs feedback </li></ul><ul><li>simple and Boolean searches and browse facility </li></ul><ul><li>current contents: ca. 900pp legacy and recent literature </li></ul><ul><li>developing a further ca 50,000 treatments for simple search </li></ul><ul><li>being developed from pilot to production </li></ul> of 5
    3. 3. What we will do in ViBRANT <ul><li>Provide assistance to OU (and other WP 7 members if required) on subject-specialist taxonomic issues for markup. </li></ul><ul><li>Provision of taXMLit & taXMLit-simple schemas + mark-ups + documentation. </li></ul><ul><li>- next week </li></ul><ul><li>3. Mapping between other schemas / DTDs (taxonX, TaxPub) and taXMLit-simple (format-based, without deep atomisation) </li></ul><ul><li>Month 3 </li></ul><ul><li>4 Search and information retrieval from marked-up documents, using INOTAXA </li></ul><ul><li>Will be made available with documentation by month 12 for development </li></ul><ul><li>5 Upload tool to put content into back-end database </li></ul><ul><li>Will be made available with documentation by month 12 for development </li></ul><ul><li>6 Review of pilot mark-up processes </li></ul><ul><li>- Month 20 </li></ul> of 5
    4. 4. How we are doing it <ul><li>Close liaison, particularly with OU team, on search system. </li></ul><ul><li>Liaison with PenSoft, KIT team, on taXMLit-simple / taXMLit schemas </li></ul><ul><li>INOTAXA database and search/retrieval system currently being re-built using PHP and a MySQL database. Funded outside ViBRANT. </li></ul><ul><li>Upload tool for texts in taXMLit and taXMLit-simple to be built. Funded outside ViBRANT. </li></ul><ul><li>Integration of INOTAXA and upload tool with Scratchpad to be discussed once full documentation available. </li></ul><ul><li>Integration of INOTAXA with other WP7 outputs (with other WP7 participants). </li></ul> of 5
    5. 5. Who are our users & how will they engage? <ul><li>Taxonomists via the Scratchpads </li></ul><ul><li>Taxonomists directly to INOTAXA.org </li></ul><ul><ul><li>currently sited on NHM server </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>will be sited also on Smithsonian server </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>metrics not currently available </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>INOTAXA built with user involvement </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Wider users via EoL (currently 866 pages; pages viewed in December = 78; 152 page views) </li></ul> of 5
