TAPIR

“TDWG Access Protocol for Information Retrieval”

development status report


Why tapir was developed

Why TAPIR was developed

  • Prevent divide into 2 networks

  • Address problems encountered with DiGIR and BioCASe

    • Esp. more flexible conceptual binding

    • Support for all TDWG standards


Tapir activities 2004 5

TAPIR Activities 2004/5

  • Draft designed Sept 2004

    • by DiGIR and BioCASe developers with GBIF support

  • Wrapper implementations

    • Berlin: BioCASe PyWrapper v2 finished

      • Edinburgh, TCS test mapping

    • Kansas: work started on Java version

  • Client/Portal implementations

    • None


Tapir outlook 2005 6

TAPIR Outlook 2005/6

  • Towards the standard specification

    • Start a separate subgroup apart from ABCD

    • Investigate implementation problems

    • Reconcile draft into proper specification

    • Submission of proposed standard for TDWG 2006

  • Wrapper implementations

    • Berlin: Develop PyWrapper provider tools

    • Kansas: Finish DiGIR provider software supporting several protocols including TAPIR

    • Allow TAPIR services to become BioMOBY services

  • Client/Portal implementations

    • GBIF: Use TAPIR for central XML services and indexing

    • IPGRI: Set up distributed information system based on TAPIR & MCPD (Multi Crop Passport Data)


New ideas to be discussed

New ideas to be discussed

  • View definitions:

    • Result ordering

    • “Environment variable” mappings: date, access point, data source name

    • Aggregating functions for repeatable nodes like concatenation or min/max

  • Remove “schema” from tag naming to be open for other conceptual bindings

  • Add “processing section” for XSLT inclusion or non verbose mode


Known issues

Known Issues

  • Investigate potential problems

    • View interpretation might depend on db schema (relevant also for paging)

  • Relation to TDWG standards

    • Recursive schema structures cause problems for implementations
