Expected outcome

Agree on clear implementation steps to be taken by participating partners until the spring 2016 CETAF general meeting and ISTC meeting.

Potential implementation steps:

  • LOD catalogue functions.
  • Ensuring that biodiversity portals such as GBIF link appropriately to specimen-URIs provided by CETAF institutions.
  • Improving LOD capabilities by harmonizing RDF metadata and linking out to external information resources (e.g. persons, geographic features, scientific names).
  • ...

Draft agenda

  • Welcome / introduction /scope
  • State of the play: each member summarises the state of identifier implementations in their institution (<= 5' per presentation)
  • The Wallich Catalogue project: a potential target use case showing the potential of HTTP-URI identifiers for specimens (Roger Hyam).
  • A tool to propagate identifiers into remote datasets (Nicky Nicolson)
  • Discussion 1: can we identify and agree on targets / use cases which i) can be achieved within 6 months and ii) nicely demonstrate the potential of HTTP-URIs and LOD?
  • Discussion 2: What's needed to achieve agreed target(s)?
  • Discussion 3: Agree on roadmap and homework for each partner.
