Individual Reports

Current tasks / bugs

  • Working on debugging the tree rebuilder code so that all actors will be treated equally.
  • Need to fix the bug in the simple search that causes it to miss non-entities.

Nico Franz

Completed tasks / bugs fixed

  • attended TDWG New Zealand; presented paper on taxonomic concept relationships; participated in SEEK-relevant discussions

Current tasks / bugs

  • continuing to work on taxonomic concepts-GUID paper

Significant issues

  • TDWG paper was very well received - no substantial criticisms. The Berlin Model team (who until now were the leading advocates on these issues) basically conceded that they hadn't considered some of my criticisms and ideas for improvement. I would now like to see these ideas end up in the TCS schema and will argue for that move again in Lawrence.

Rich Williams

Current tasks / bugs

  • Ontology development - formalizing domain concepts from BEAM San Diego meeting
  • GrOWL - continued bug fixing

Bing Zhu

Completed tasks / bugs fixed

  • re-designed the gwsdl based on new requirements from Jing and Rod

Current tasks / bugs

  • implementation of five operations for Ecogrid registry service. The five operations are addRegistryEntry(), updateRegistryEntry(), deleteRegistryEntry, getAllRegistryServices(), queryRegistryServices().
