The Data Dissemination Module, available via Setup (Cog button) and Export Metadata, provides a tool to export metadata to a standard compliant XML file. For every metadata structure in the system there is one tab in the tab strip.
The data grid in one tab shows all datasets belonging to the selected metadata structure.
Select a checkbox to mark datasets you would like to export.
Please click the Export button and wait until the metadata XML file has been created successfully and a download link is available in-line.
In the mapping tool in BEXIS it is possible to set each metadata structure to predefined keys and party types (for more information about party types see the manual about parties).
Advantages after mapping a metadata structure:
This image shows an overview of the existing Parties. In this case only one person and one exists.
Auto complete for projects.
Auto complete for persons.
The page is divided into 3 sections. The source is displayed on the left. The target is displayed on the right side. In the middle all created mappings are displayed.
3.1.1 Source and Target
Each side as a simple and complex block as also a free text search. Simple elements are example first name, last name or full name from a person. A Complex type can be a person.
Mappings are connections between the source and the target. There are different connection possibilities between the simple attributes. Generally only the connection between two simple attributes is considered.
With the aid of a transformation rule, it is possible to cover a wide range of different cases. A transformation rule consists of a RegEx and a mask. With an example you can check the values and the expected result.
Following is some examples of one to one, one to many and many to one mapping.
3.2.1 EXAMPLE one to one
This example creates a connection between 2 titles. All words are separated by a RegEx and then arranged differently via the mask.
3.2.2 EXAMPLE one to many
This example creates a connection between 1 name and a FirstName and LastName. In the transformation rule, the first and last names are separated from one another by a RegEx and then positioned in the mask via the variable.
3.2.3 EXAMPLE many to one
This example creates a connection between the FirstName and LastName by name. Here is no RegEx needed but the mask ordered from both variables.
It is possible to prepare the data for 2 brokers and a total of 3 data repositories.
There is a limitation for Pensoft. All data prepared for Pensoft must be generated with the GBIF metadata structure.
It is only possible to prepare datasets if the metadata is valid.
The user can publish a dataset version if you go to the dataset and find the publish tab.
The dropdown is showing all available data center. Select on and the system try to convert the data and the metadata as defined in the submissionConfig.xml. If something fails a message will displayed.
There are two types of fails:
Via the GFBIO portal you can start a submission and publish your dataset. Depending on the subject of the data set, a suitable Data Repository is defined. There are different main Types.
Each data repository has different data requirements. BEXIS 2 offers an export for Pangea and Collections.
The data for the collections is stored in a zip file.
The following files can be found in the zip file.
For Pangea, the metadata and primary data are stored in a text file.
