1 Leveraging Filtered Push Technology to Enhance Remote Taxonomic Identifications Nico Franz 1, Edward Gilbert 1, Neil Cobb 2 & Paul Morris 3 1 School of Life Sciences, Arizona State University 2 Merriam-Powell Center, Northern Arizona University 3 Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University TDWD 2013 Annual Conference, Florence, Italy Biodiversity Data Quality – Issues, Methods and Tools October 29, 2013

2 Currently 9 Thematic Collection Networks with 130 participating institutions A dvancing D igitization of B iodiversity C ollections (NSF ADBC Program)  Digitize 1 billion specimens in 10 years

3 UNM TAMU ASU DMNS UCB NMSU CSU TTU NAU UA SCAN member collections Average ~ 480 miles apart

4 SCAN digitization objectives Digitize 1 million records for southwestern ground-dwelling arthropods Produce 16,000 high-resolution images of species; promote identifications Leverage an interactive identification & annotation workflow via Symbiota Gerstaeckeria porosa (LeConte, 1876) – ASUHIC Crotanius trivittatus (Champion, 1908) – ASUHIC

5 SCAN ADBC Ground-Dwelling Arthropod Records SCAN ADBC Non-Target Taxa Records SCAN ADBC Collections SCAN Non-ADBC Broader Impact Records SCAN Broader Impact Collections September, 2013: 510,262 records in SCAN 510,262 specimens in Symbiota 300,984 (59%) georeferenced 338,836 (66%) identified to species 1,016 families 8,056 genera 17,538 species  Primary need: remote IDs

6 Deployment diagram – Symbiota & Filtered Push interaction Source: Filtered Push3 Node New, remotely added identifications are grounded in the Annotation Ontology. FP team has developed Symbiota-integrated PHP Client Tools that record and push new annotations to the external FP infrastructure where statistics are kept. SCAN Symbiota Portal New FP Client Tools in Symbiota

7 Current workings & look in SCAN

8 Homepage – Images

9 ID = Scarabaeidae Image thumbnail gallery – some are insufficiently identified ID = Epicaerus

10 More information – occurrence records, images – is clicks away

11

12 Experts can log in and view a taxon-tailored IDs Needed tab This is the scarab in need of an ID

13 Experts can log in and view a taxon-tailored IDs Needed tab This is the scarab in need of an ID Occurrence tab

14 Experts can log in and view a taxon-tailored IDs Needed tab This is the scarab in need of an ID Occurrence tab Images tab

15 Adding a new identification in the Determination History tab  Scientific Name is linked to the SCAN Taxonomic Thesaurus.

16 The fully integrated Symbiota tab for IDs is Filtered Push-enabled New = current ID Image remapping Submission to FP

17 Confirmation in SCAN Simultaneous ID recording internally (SCAN) and externally (FP)

18 Confirmation in SCAN Confirmation in FP3 node Simultaneous ID recording internally (SCAN) and externally (FP) Annotations list view AO translation

19 Simultaneous ID recording internally (SCAN) and externally (FP) Confirmation in FP3 node Confirmation in SCAN Annotations detail view RDF / XML translation AO translation

20 Future work – 1st production-level Symbiota / FP implementation Optimization of SCAN "IDs Needed" user interface – thumbnail view Roll-out to the SCAN expert community, creation of expert profiles in FP Expansion beyond SCAN members, diversified notification systems "Curculionidae" ("Calles" sp.) – ASUHIC

21 TDWG 2013 Symposium organizers – Antonio Mauro Saraiva James Hanken, Maureen Kelly & David Lowery – ASUHIC digitization team – Sangmi Lee, David Fleming, Soon Flynn, Andrew Jansen, Catherine Mercado, Joshua Persson, Sarah Shirota, Michael Shillingburg. NSF Award EF "Digitization TCN: Collaborative Research: Southwest Collections of Arthropods Network (SCAN): a Model for Collections Digitization to Promote Taxonomic and Ecological Research."
