Background to wp4

Background to WP4

Overarching objectives & vision

Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets

Provide management and dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies

Provide biologists with the necessary flexibility to express their knowledge regardless of whether the terminology has been standardized yet or not. API service

Our job is to clarify what this means…

1. Untangling WP4 objectives

Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets

i.e. linking up the Scratchpad archipelago

Sites: 200+

40% accessed

per mnth

Users: 2340+

10% access

per mnth

Pages: 205k

Since Mar. ‘07

How do we do this?

Circa 2 new sites/wk.

1. Untangling WP4 objectives

Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets

Options for linking up the Scratchpads

  • Search

    • Planned via Apache Lucene in WP2 (issues for distributed servers)

  • A registry listing all the Scratchpads

    • Planned in WP2 (several options for doing this)

  • Integrating data

    • Planned in WP4 via the CDM

A key objective of this meeting is to detail options for the registry & the CDM

1. Untangling WP4 objectives

Facilitate integration and harmonisation of distributed data-sets

Associated deliverables:

D4.1) Scratchpad common access point:

Develop an initial set of API services to link the Scratchpad communities to the resources of the CDM, to facilitate data exchange. [month 12] - NB Too early

D4.3) Ongoing services enhancements:

Develop robust services, based on usage statistics and user feedback, that enhance the prototype tools delivered under D4.1 & D4.2 [month 36]

2. Untangling WP4 objectives

Provide mang. & dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies

i.e. providing a more standardised approach to vocabularies

Controlled

vocabularies

in a Scratchpad

How do we get people to share these lists?

2. Untangling WP4 objectives

Provide mang. & dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies

Initial approach to sharing vocabularies in WP4

  • Explore needs

    • Ongoing via GBIF

  • Develop prototypes

    • Being planned by GBIF (DR) now

  • Embed vocabularies into Scratchpads

    • Need to work out the details

2. Untangling WP4 objectives

Provide mang. & dissemination facilities for the necessary ontologies

Associated deliverables:

D4.2) Ontology tools:

Develop the GBIF ontology tool and produce an equivalent tool based on a semantic wiki. Deliver a single user interface for ontology creation and editing based on user-acceptance of the alternative technologies. [month 24]

D4.3) Ongoing services enhancements:

Develop robust services, based on usage statistics and user feedback, that enhance the prototype tools delivered under D4.1 & D4.2 [month 36]
