Items to be scheduled

Please add new items here

  • Discussion on whether anything needs to change in the HISPID 5 XML Schema document to better support the delivery of data to AVH/ALA.
Obsolete? On what grounds? --User:Benr
Hmm. 20 years? You ignore the work done by Neish, Richardson and Whitbread in 2007... --User:Benr
Including yourself, apparently! --User:Benr
  • Outline the ALA/AVH support for specimen GUIDs and following on from this, determine the plans of individual herbaria with regard to applying GUIDs to specimens.
A specimen record is a computer model of a physical specimen, thus the GUID can be considered to apply to both, surely? #splittinghairs --User:Benr

Your input appreciated to enable development of the BDRS (Biological Data Recording System) to capture survey field data. Also, what data output standards should be used for the BDRS e.g. HISPID5. The BDRS is an online platform for collecting survey field data via browsers and mobile devices being developed by Gaia Resources soon to be trialled on ABRS’ Bush Blitzes. It aims to provide an efficient means of getting vouchered survey data from the field into institutional research databases.
