Internet Search Environment Number (ISEN)

December 22, 2007

Internet Search Environment Number (ISEN)
http://www.isen.org/

The Internet Search Environment Number (ISEN) is for researchers who find it difficult to locate and search relevant, evaluated online databases. The ISEN is the foundation of a portal that comprehensively catalogs the Internet’s databases. Unlike Yahoo or Google and other portals that keyword index a portion of constantly changing web sites, ISEN focuses on the niche of cataloging databases. ISEN facilitates access and adds value by creating more effective and efficient Internet search experiences. ISEN is the foundation of a marketplace for information owners and vendors who desire more exposure of their information product to a broader range of Internet researchers. ISEN provides an auditing tool for organizations and individuals to find refined and structured resources that have been obscured by the rapid and overwhelming growth of web pages. ISEN provides a new proposed library standard for organizing databases that is historically overdue. The Internet Search Environment (ISE) is the primary concept behind the Internet Search Environment Number or ISEN. An ISE is a container of structured information that has its own search algorithm. Each database, search engine, knowledge base, digital library, institutional repository, OPAC & P2P environment and other types of search environments that currently exist or may exist in the future would be assigned an ISEN and be cataloged using taxonomic and folksonomic tags or metadata. The ISE is the number of these search environments that exist. This has been added to Deep Web Research Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.

Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS)

December 22, 2007

Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS)
http://www.iobis.org/

13.7 million records of 80000 species from 238 databases …. OBIS was established by the Census of Marine Life program (www.coml.org). It is an evolving strategic alliance of people and organizations sharing a vision to make marine biogeographic data, from all over the world, freely available over the World Wide Web. It is not a project or program, and is not limited to data from CoML-related projects. Any organization, consortium, project or individual may contribute to OBIS. OBIS provides, on an ‘open access’ basis through the World Wide Web: a) taxonomically and geographically resolved data on marine life and the ocean environment; b) interoperability with similar databases; and c) software tools for data exploration and analysis. OBIS was one of the earliest Associate Members of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (www.gbif.org) which publishes data on all species. OBIS is a very active participant in GBIF activities, and one of the largest publishers of data to GBIF, reflecting its role as a specialist network for marine species. GBIF recommends that marine data are first published through OBIS, because OBIS can add special value (e.g. depth) and will manage the subsequent publication of data through GBIF. This also avoids duplication of data being separately published to GBIF and OBIS. This has been added to Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog.
