Semantic enrichment and mobilization of data in distributed repositories for taxonomy and ecology of spiders
In a DFG funded project available digital information on spiders (Araneae) in Germany was integrated, enriched, standardized and analysed. A taxonomic package delivered a description scheme for salticid spiders to be integrated in the virtual research environment Diversity Workbench (module DiversityDescriptions) and a workflow to interactive identification keys and taxonomic publications. Ecological data from distributed sources were compiled, enriched in a standardized way and analysed exemplary. Semantic lists and analytical tools were designed and integrated in Diversity Workbench and are presented through this portal by the German Arachnologische Gesellschaft.
