The DWB BioCASe Data Publication Services

The DWB BioCASe data pipeline at the SNSB IT Center provides public access to BioCASe processed Data Sources and Units from the field of occurrence data, i. e., collection and observation data. It connects Diversity Workbench (DWB) Services with a local installation of the BioCASe Provider Software.

The (meta) data is organised following Linked Open Data (LOD) requirements with URIs as stable and unique identifiers. The system is compliant to GBIF (see SNSB as GBIF data publisher).

In the case of specimens held by CETAF taxonomic facilities the evolving network is linking stable identifiers for specimens. Each dataset is building its own catalogue with the CSPP collection metadata elements included.

The DWB BioCASe Data Publication pipeline is set up and offered as part of the German Federation for Biological Data (GFBio) infrastructure. Further services of the GFBio Data Center SNSB are described by its portfolio. A redirect to machine-readable representation is on the way and a GFBio documentation of the pipeline is under construction.
