Jump to navigation Jump to search


The Cyberinfrastructure Working Group (CYWG) was established as an outcome of the iDigBio IT Standards Workshop held in Gainesville, FL on March 28-30, 2012. In line with the iDigBio roadmap, the focus of the initial group will be on the iDigBio data ingestion procedures related to API (Application Programming Interface) or appliance specification, implementation and test.

The working group will produce material with concrete data ingestion use cases from TCNs, provide input about the existing cyberinfrastructure, produce data ingestion requirements, and help evaluate iDigBio services and appliances implementations.


To express an interest in joining the working group, please contact Renato Figueiredo.
