Checking, validation, quality assurance
  • Internal checks by queries
  • Checks by specialists (taxonomy, other
    specialties)
  • Checks by area specialists
  • Cross-check with CoF
  • Classification Nelson -gt Eschmeyer
    Authors Difficulty to coordinate all changes
  • Problem what is to be complete?

Information systems as icebergs optimal situation
  • Distinction between views for end-users … …
    and tables for specialists

FishBase identification tools
  • Quick identification through outlines down to
    Families
  • Quick identification through photos by Family,
    Country, Ecosystems
  • Dichotomous key computerised (FAO, Ichthyofaunas)
  • Matrix approach (computer-aided identification)

19
Biogeographic modelling
  • Occurrence points in can be mapped and used with
    available environmental parameters to predict
    other possible occurrences of the species through
    mapping and spatial modelling

Georeferenced records from 43 museum collections
and survey data

Mapping in SAUP (Fisheries Centre, UBC, Vancouver)

Common Access and Interoperability
  • What is common access?
  • Accessing at the same time to databases covering
    the same topic
  • What is interoperability?
  • Accessing at the same time to databases covering
    complementary topics

What we can provide
  • Lists of species by taxononmy, by country, by
    ecosystems, by FAO areas
  • A fixed English common name
  • Deep-links to species pages or others to flesh
    the barcode
  • Diagnosis, description, photo, other infromation
    as required
  • List of "synonyms" and common names
  • Link with traditional identification tools
  • Link to mapping system
  • To discuss web services through xml
  • Depending on author agreement

29
What we expect
  • A new link from FishBase for users
  • Widen our collaborator network (new data, data
    check)
  • Importing the survey data
  • Complete our photo set (at least one photo per
    species)
  • Taking the opportunity to handle more taxonomic
    levels
  • To root the iceberg for the taxonomy management
    (concept approach potential taxa)

30
Lessons learned in FishBase
  • Science first attitude
  • Yes attitude towards suggestions
  • Invite, accept and act on criticism
  • Keep in the limits of the project
  • Data quantity and quality first
  • Keep it simple, software keeps changing
  • Invest in people
  • Give more credit than expected
