- New API division by Zhimin
Bob: developed some samples for AddAnnotation message; tuned proposed schema with Zhimin
Zhimin: making 2 APIs for web client. First is for "Quick response" queries; Second is for asynchronous queries.
Maureen: ian lumb's blog about annotation.
James: SPNH abstract ready for submission today. Wrote USVH comment on wg-digitization. In discussion with Sarah Mathews and Cam Webb about submission to NSF Dimensions in Biodiversity program. James and Bob are in budget exercises to keep current team on board at least until end of September.
David: coding SQL queries mapping Specify to DwC.
This week's discussion:
Bob showed draft AddAnnotationMessageBody sample, including a psuedo-scheme for "taxon determination" assertions. James suggests sticking closer to standard vocabulary in the discipline, rather than characterizing determination as "wrong".
Need to change the Annotator element to be more than a string, e.g. GUIDs of and Agent object, or other URI.
Discussion of citation of annotations. What's needed, e.g. GUIDs?
What's needed for releasing for feedback. Bob: need a proposed normative, representation-free, set of facets.
APIs for FP queries
