Ocean Biodiversity Informatics

International Conference on Marine Biodiversity Data Management

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

objectives
Objectives
  • Stock-taking
    • where are we?
    • where do we want to go?
  • Technological changes
    • necessitate re-thinking of data management and role of data centres
  • How to create large databases
    • content
    • technology

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

specific objectives
Specific objectives
  • bring together biological data managers to discuss the present state, and progress, in this field since the meetings in Hamburg (1996) and Brussels (2002)
  • provide an opportunity for biological data managers to find out what is happening at international organisations
  • discuss potential gaps and overlaps in the taxonomic and geographic scope of existing data systems
  • discuss standards and protocols for data exchange
  • how to integrate data from separate databases
  • learn how these integrated databases have provided new insights

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

follow up from previous meetings
Follow-up from previous meetings
  • International Workshop on Oceanographic Biological and Chemical Data Management. Hamburg, Germany. 20-23 May 1996
    • Bundesamt für Seeschiffahrt und Hydrographie,
    • IOC, NOAA (WDC-A)
  • Colour of Ocean Data Symposium. Brussels, Belgium. 25-27 November 2002
    • Flanders Marine Institute
    • OSTC, IOC, OBIS

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

hamburg 1996 objectives
Hamburg 1996: objectives
  • identify parameters that the IOC/IODE system can effectively handle
  • describe minimum meta data requirements that make the data useful for future users of the data
  • identify problems that may limit the usefulness of historical data
  • identify users of these data and their requirements

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

hamburg 1996 topics
Hamburg 1996: topics
  • Need for biological and oceanographic data
  • Standardization of biological data collection
  • Development of chemical and biological oceanographic data management
  • Future technology
  • Capacity building
  • Funding

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

brussels 2002 objectives
Brussels 2002: objectives
  • Bring together marine/oceanographic data users and providers from different backgrounds
    • Biological vs physico-chemical
    • Data manager vs scientist
  • Identify common needs
  • Identify points of common interest

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

brussels 2002 conclusions
Brussels 2002: conclusions
  • Differences between physico-chemical and biological databases
    • Physicochemical data are larger volumes; biological data are more complex
    • Better established system for data exchange for PC data
  • Commonalities more important than differences
    • Need for proper data management: archiving…
    • Make databases citable (incentive for data submission)

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

international organisations
International organisations
  • IOC
    • Lesley Rickards in opening session
    • Several talks by people from NODCs
  • ICES
    • Julie Gillin in opening session, chair of session, closing session
    • Talk/poster from ICES collaborators
  • ICSU/WDCs
    • Nick Michaelov, Robert Gelfeld
    • Support from WDC-A to participants
  • OBIS, GBIF, FAO…

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

gaps and overlaps
Gaps and overlaps
  • Needs inventory of activities
  • Too much integration, too little work on the ground?
    • ‘inverted pyramid’
  • Too little work in the tropics?
  • Too much observer bias to ‘sexy’ groups like fish and molluscs?

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

standards and protocols
Standards and protocols
  • Standards
    • species lists, classification
    • gazetteer
    • information content/db structure
  • Protocols
    • mechanics of data exchange
      • eg DiGIR, BioCASe

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

distributed systems
Distributed systems
  • Data creator remains in control of data
  • Technological changes make re-thinking of the role of data centres necessary
    • ICES re-inventing its data centre
    • IODE review
    • Discussions during COD conference

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

integrate data
Integrate data
  • Within discipline
    • OBIS, GBIF
    • Create large databases, make distribution patterns visible
  • Across disciplines
    • physic-chemical parameters
      • IOC/IODE, WDCs
    • correlate distribution patterns with environmental information
  • How to get at the data?

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004

new insights
New insights
  • Integration leads to larger geographic and taxonomic scopes, longer time basis – patterns clearer
  • Turn data into information
    • Data retrieval and visualisation tools
  • Analysis
    • Analysis tools
    • Fisheries examples

Ocean Biodiversity Informatics conference

Hamburg, 29/11-1/12/2004
