From Hiscom
Jump to: navigation, search


Intention

The goal of this workshop is to make the staff from the Herbaria acquainted with the BioCASe Provider Software, ABCD and HISPID. After the two days, they should be hopefully able to set up a BioCASe datasource on their own servers providing data with ABCD/HISPID.

Agenda

  1. The BioCASe Architecture: An Overview
  2. The BioCASe Provider Software: Features, Requirements, Installation, Configuration
  3. The ABCD and HISPID data standards: Intentions, Structure, Elements, Use
  4. Preparing the database for BioCASe/ABCD
  5. Setting Up Datasources: Database connection, Table Setup, Mapping Process; Testing, Data Backups
  6. Miscellaneous Issues
