Herbarium Information Standards and Protocols for Interchange of Data (HISPID) is a file format developed by Australian herbaria to enable the interchange of plant specimen data.

HISPID 5

HISPID version 5 was presented at TDWG 2007, and now represents the preferred format for HISPID files. This version is written in XML Schema as an extension of ABCD.

HISPID 4

HISPID version 4 was never formally released in print, appearing in a web-enabled database version in 2000. It was an incremental upgrade to HISPID 3. Since August 2007, HISPID 4 has been made available as an extract from the original database in wiki format.

HISPID 3

HISPID version 3 was released in 1996[1] and follows the syntax specified in ASN.1 format. The documentation for this standard is in HTML both as a complete document and as sections, and is available from the web site of the National Herbarium of New South Wales, Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust.

HISPID 2

HISPID version 2 was released in 1993[2].

HISPID 1

HISPID version 1 was released in 1989[3].
