Specimen Import from GBIF/BioCase¶
On this page we want to discuss and define the way of importing specimen from GBIF/BioCase into a CDM instance.
The search should be possible for BioCase Providers and for GBIF.
The search parameters should be more general (at the moment they are more botanical related)
The result of the BioCase search is not larger than 200 units, for larger datasets we have to page it.
For the providers it should be possible to have a freetext field for searching the institution or collection code and the recently used providers should be presented first.
It should be possible to choose the specimen imported into the db.
It is important that the determinations are imported to the CDM
AnnoSys should be included to add annotations to the original data. (Maybe the annotation should also be visible in the EDIT portal)
Possibility to choose a single taxon which is the "target" for all imported specimen
For a bulk import of specimen the matching algorithm should compare only the scientific name without the authorstring
The possibility to check the imported data
- GBIF deletes names or change names which are not found in the GBIF backbone (for example a species name not in the backbone but with a known genus is reduced to the genus epithet)
Getting the data for a search from the webservice and display the information in a table.
In this table it is possible to select the specimen which should be imported.
The next step would be to send the IDs to the server and the server starts the import only for the selected specimen.
In the search dialog the target taxon can be chosen by a selection dialog.
Implementing a bulk editor filter for sources (to filter all specimen of one import)
