Updated Geodata and Location page with Record List

The geodata in the database is updated: (almost) every location is now linked to lat/long coordinates as well as its GeoNameId. I also checked the geodata for mistakes. As the main result, the Checklist Caucasus and the record lists for every species now essentially represent the most recent information given in our OntoWiki project “caucasus-spiders.info Version 2.0″.

The location pages now contain a list with the species records from this location, e.g. Tbilisi.

In the next weeks I plan to include country checklists and to improve the publications page (… links to PDF files, BibTeX codes etc.).

Stay tuned …

Checklist, Species and Locations

The basic functions are now available:

  • The Caucasus Checklist is now linked to single species datasheets
  • The Species Datasheet (a sub-page of the Checklist Caucasus) now contains a map with the records and lists of original and cited records, which are linked to these locations and the relevant publication
  • The Single Location page (a sub-page of Locations) now contains some basic information on a given location (e.g. its area, country, region), some geoinformation and a reference to its data on geonames.org
