Databasedesign: Darwin Core standard
Her kan du finde information om hvordan du kan designe din database i overensstemmelse med Darwin Core standard, så den bliver kompatibel med GBIF.
Om Darwin Core
Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A) is an internationally recognised biodiversity informatics data standard that simplifies the publication of biodiversity data. It is based on Darwin Core, a standard developed and maintained by the Biodiversity Information Standards group.
The Darwin Core is a standard designed to facilitate the exchange of information about the geographic occurrence of species and the existence of specimens in collections. Extensions to the Darwin Core provide a mechanism to share additional information, which may be discipline-specific, or beyond the commonly agreed upon scope of the Darwin Core itself. Read more on the Darwin Core website.
The Darwin Core Quick Reference Guide provides a complete listing of all the Darwin Core terms, their definitions and examples of their usage.
Publicering af data i GBIF
GBIF har en god indføring i hvordan man publicerer data: Publishing data through GBIF.org.
The Darwin Core is body of standards. It includes a glossary of terms intended to facilitate the sharing of information about biological diversity by providing reference definitions, examples, and commentaries. The Darwin Core is primarily based on taxa, their occurrence in nature as documented by observations, specimens, and samples, and related information. See Darwin Core Quick Reference Guide.
Specify is a database platform for museum and herbarium research data. It manages species and specimen information for computerizing biological collections, tracking museum specimen transactions, linking images to specimen records and publishing catalog data to the Internet.
Specify supports data from specimens, taxonomic and stratigraphic classifications, field notebooks, DNA sequence runs, literature references, as well as from other primary sources. It also manages the information associated with repository agreements, accessions, conservation treatments, collection object containers, images, and document attachments. See Specify tutorial.
