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 6

HISPID 6 was developed over a period beginning in 2014 and builds primarily upon Darwin Core, but because of its ontological basis, inherits terms from other terminologies too.

The vocabulary is available through our Github website and is managed in our HISPID repository in Github.

HISPID 6 is now the preferred terminology for use by the Australasian herbarium community for data exchange.

HISPID 5

HISPID version 5 was presented at TDWG 2007. This version was 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].
