Geobibliography: Georeferencing and other authorities in MARC Records:  Geobibliography: Georeferencing and other authorities in MARC Records Presented by Stephanie C. Haas Digital Library Center University of Florida Linking Florida’s Natural Heritage: Science & Citizenry:  Linking Florida’s Natural Heritage: Science & Citizenry “Virtual” Library on Florida’s Species/Ecosystem: Database creation Thesaurus construction Z39.50 interface to permit retrieval of museum records and related literature Transparent common/ scientific name mapping to facilitate non- scientist use:  “Virtual” Library on Florida’s Species/Ecosystem: Database creation Thesaurus construction Z39.50 interface to permit retrieval of museum records and related literature Transparent common/ scientific name mapping to facilitate non- scientist use DATABASES CREATED: Florida Environments Online LFNH Core Collection of 200 Digitized Texts:  DATABASES CREATED: Florida Environments Online LFNH Core Collection of 200 Digitized Texts Slide6:  Florida Environments Online Database 8 merged research bibliographies: Florida Ecosystems, by Dr. John Ewel Florida Ornithology, by the Florida Ornithological Society Fishes of Florida, by George Burgess Florida Herpetology, by Kevin Enge Florida Geology, by Dr. Anthony Randazzo Bibliography of Literature Useful to the Study of Florida Plants, by Kent Perkins Florida Freshwater Environments, by Tom Savage and Landon Ross Florida Agricultural History, by Dr. Vernon Kisling Slide7:  Digitization of 200 seminal works on Florida's species and ecosystems: Botany Entomology Florida Fish Florida Freshwater Ecosystems Florida Geology Florida Natural Systems Florida Terrestrial Systems Herpetology Marine Resources Non-indigenous Species Ornithology Slide10:  FSU 26467 Franklin Gulf of Mexico J. Stevenson 10-Jun 1972 76497 J. Morgan MARC and Museums:  MARC and Museums Key access points to museum records are taxonomic and geographic; therefore, FEOL bibliographic database records were enhanced to reflect these foci. Taxonomic Enhancements:  Taxonomic Enhancements Added a new 754: : Taxonomic Information Field Populated from the Integrated Taxonomic Information System http://www.its.used.go/plastron/its/index.html developed by the Biological Research Division of the U.S. Geological Survey Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS):  Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) ITIS was designed “to improve the organization of and access to standardized nomenclature” including hierarchical classification. ITIS includes documented taxonomic information of flora and fauna from both aquatic and terrestrial habitats with a U.S. emphasis. Geographic Enhancements:  Geographic Enhancements MARC records were also enhanced to contain geo-referenced fields that could be correlated to locations given in specimen records: country, state/province, county, and named places. Geographic Fields added to MARC::  Geographic Fields added to MARC: 034: : |d Western latitude in decimal degrees |f Northern longitude in decimal degrees 752: : |a Country |b State |c County |d Named Place 651: 4: |a County |z HUC# |x HUC 651: 4: |a County |z FIPS# |x FIPS 752 Field populated from the:  752 Field populated from the Geographic Names Information System(GNIS) (http://www-nmd.usgs.gov/www/gnis/index.html), U.S.G.S. provides an authoritative source for the closest named place term and a central latitude/longitude point in decimal degrees, as well as in degrees, minutes, seconds. GNIS data elements:  GNIS data elements Feature Name Everglades National Park Type Park County Monroe FIPS (St) 12 FIPS (Co) 87 Prim Long DD(w) -80.9375 Prim Lat DD(n) 25.3125 651: 4: HUC codes:  651: 4: HUC codes Aquatic species records often have drainage basin information. Frequently, basin names correlate to Hydrologic Unit Codes (HUCs) Reference: http://wwwrvares.er.usgs.gov/wqn96cd/wqn/wq/huc_name.txt 651: 4: FIPS codes:  FIPS codes are from the National Institute of Standards and Technology and consist of coded numbers for states and counties, e.g., Alachua County, FL is 12001 651: 4: FIPS codes Slide22:  Geospatial enhancements Taxonomic enhancements Where in the world is?:  Where in the world is? Latitude/Longitude in Decimal o + Tiger Mapping Service Database http://tiger.census.gov/instruct.htm or Xerox PARC Map Viewer http://pubweb.parc.xerox.com/map MAP Slide25:  856:4 : |9 Map |u http://cyan.census.gov/cgi-bin/mapper/map.gif?lat=29.72639&lon=-84.9775&mark=-84.9775,29.72639,redstar, Apalachicola+River&off=CITIES |z TMS Additional authorities used in the Linking Florida’s Natural Heritage grant:  Additional authorities used in the Linking Florida’s Natural Heritage grant FEOL Thesaurus http://susdl.fcla.edu/lfnh/thesauri/feol2/index.htm was constructed from 4 others::  FEOL Thesaurus http://susdl.fcla.edu/lfnh/thesauri/feol2/index.htm was constructed from 4 others: ENVOC (multilingual thesaurus of environmental terms) Fish and Wildlife Reference Service Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts Fire Ecology Thesaurus California Resources Agency Environtmenal Resources (CERES) Thesaurus Florida's Natural Communities Thesaurus http://susdl.fcla.edu/lfnh/thesauri/fnc/index.htm:  Florida's Natural Communities Thesaurus http://susdl.fcla.edu/lfnh/thesauri/fnc/index.htm Slide31:  The Florida's Natural Communities Thesaurus is a separate file with terms and relationships derived from: Florida Natural Areas Inventory (FNAI), Florida DOT's Florida Land Use, Cover and Forms Classification System, January 1999 edition, and Federal Wetlands Classification. Can we get there from here?:  Can we get there from here? Need to explore the use of the geographic enhancements in a GIS setting. Can we use the 034 and 651 fields? In terms of geospatial attributes, we currently have central points not polygons. No way of handling Lake Wales Ridge, Gulf of Mexico, etc.
