The following table lists some fundamental BSS requirements and ways data providers can prepare to get ready for easy sharing of bio data.

 

 

BSS RequirementsActions / Questions for data providers
Species abundance descriptors need to be standardized nationally through agreed vocabulariesCheck internal usage of abundance descriptors and categories with a view to have a instututional standard
Taxa name need to be standardized nationally through a national register

Develop a in-house standard taxa list everybody needs to use and is in all workflows

Get ready to link to New Zealand Organisms Register: add nzor_id in your in-house taxa list.

Have a look at nzor.org.nz, demo.nzor.org.nz

Goto  http://demo.nzor.org.nz/matches, there you can match your taxa list against NZOR!

All spatial coordinates for a occurrence observation need to be described consistently and unambiguouslyAre you sure you know your coordinate system used for all observations?
All dates / times for a occurrence observation need to be described consistently and unambiguouslyAre you sure all your date / time recorded are unambiguous (time zones, daylight saving)?
Some records require site identifiers

How do you record site identifiers for occurrence observation at the moment?

Do you have a well maintained site register?

General data management

Do you know where all your bio observation data is?

Consider establish data catalog

Consider establish an institutional bio-data archive

Consider doing a maturity assessment for your data management system
