1 Integrating heterogeneous databases in the Ocean Biogeographic Information System Phoebe Y. Zhang J.F. Grassle Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey

2 Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) OBIS is the information component of the Census of Marine Life, an international research program assessing and explaining the diversity, distribution and abundance of marine organisms throughout the world's oceans OBIS is an international science program to develop an on-line, open-access, globally-distributed network of systematic, ecological, and environmental information systems ”What lives where in the oceans and why”

3 OBIS History 1997:Some of the initial ideas for OBIS were developed at a CoML meeting 1998:Sloan funded Rutgers to develop a web-site to demonstrate the initial concept 1999: The first OBIS international workshop, DC 2000: NOPP funded eight projects to initiate OBIS 2001: NSF funded Rutgers to build a global portal for OBIS, OBIS becomes a GBIF Partner 2002:NOPP funded and other OBIS projects are interoperable through OBIS portal

4 OBIS International Committee Mark J. Costello, Chair, Canada Neil Ashcroft, United Kingdom Geoff Boxshall, United Kingdom Daphne G. Fautin, USA Kim Finney, Australia Rainer Froese, Germany Dennis P. Gordon, New Zealand J. Frederick Grassle, USA Yoshihisa Shirayama, Japan OBIS Secretariat

5 OBIS Members Bats Zooplankton (Deborah Steinberg) Biogeoinformatics of Hexacorals (Daphne Fautin, Bob Buddemeier) Cephbase (Phillip Lee, James Wood ) FishBase (William Eschmeyer, Rainer Froese) Fishnet (Edward Wiley ) GMBIS (Dale Kiefer) Indo-Pacific Mollusc Database (Gary Rosenberg) National Ocean Data Center (Roz Cohen) Seamount Online (Karen Stocks) ZooGene (Ann Bucklin,Bruce W.

22 Plans for the near future Genetic Information service (under development)Genetic Information service (under development) Expand returned data types on biogeographic data Integrate HMAP, Gulf of Maine, Southampton open sea data, and other mature data systems Incorporate more mapping, analysis, and modeling tools into the portal and provide network-wide automatic service –Provide more key environmental data sets, provide viewing tools – Envirodata and EASy Netviewer

23 Spatial patterns in Species Richness from the ARC database in relation to ocean thermal structure (SST) and bathymetry EASy Netviewer

24 Become an OBIS Member provide data service to OBIS users through dynamic, distributed query provide data service to OBIS users by sending a copy of the data to OBIS for dynamic serving provide other services that can benefit the whole OBIS community Contact Phoebe Zhang:
