Notes

FilteredPush Team Meeting 2011 Aug 2

Present: Jim, Paul, Bob, Bertram, Lei, Tim, James

Agenda

  • Approach to ADBC/HUB
  • TDWG
  • Mapper
  • Embedded Kepler
  • Update on job search (Zhimin's position)?

Notes

Lei is OK with abstract.

Jim: coordinate with ADBC over schedules and collaboration. Bob and Paul will do so by contacting Greg R.


  • TDWG

James: Several people have said they will participate: Chris Freeland; Maybe Donald Hobern; Maybe Nico Cellinese.


Who to go: James, Bob, Paul, New Person? Someone from UC Davis? (esp. if demo / poster there!?)

  • Mapper

Tim:

Maybe use YAML http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YAML instead of XML. Curently in XML for ease.

Paul: Tim's strategy is :Domain software on one side of Mapper. DBA writes sequence of SQL statements that mapper uses to implement incoming requests. Incoming looks at configuration to find sequence and args.Configuration will specify order of items in sequence since some require foreign keys not made until another is inserted.

Bob: Is it worth Tim looking at Specify DwC import code for implentation in Specify? Paul: Lei: How would this compare to approach of schema mapping Lei and Zhimin looked in. Tim: not doing schema mapping. Rather map a flat DwC record to a relational schema. Don't need to know the full target schema, just how to map to/from DwC.

  • Embedded Kepler

Lei: To continue with Maureen. Needs some data. Bob: how about TDWG 2010 BioBlitz data. Paul: implement against FP1 to inform design for FP2

Bertam: * IDCC abstract: How to reference FPush? (paper, web site?)
