Our community must experiment with LSID technology and Ontology Engineering if we are to implement a production quality LSID system, The working group will develop prototypes of test cases to test aspects of a GUID infrastructure.
The group will develop test LSID resolvers using data objects provided by each domain, such as names, specimens, and concepts. This activity will also help involve (and train) the community in developing appropriate RDF ontologies, leading to concrete recommendations and implementations.
The potential prototypes to be developed are:
LSIDBasedIntegrationAntsDemo - A project to demonstrate the potential from LSID-based integration of data for a particular group (Ants) - LSIDs, taxonomic lit, specimen, images, names, sequences from Genbank
