CNR Activities

The Species Discovery Interface Portlet has been implemented and is under testing. It is an access point to the Species Manager Service resident in the infrastructure. The interface is endowed with an area for setting up the filtering criteria for searching species (by means of Scientific Name, Common Name, Latitude, Longitude etc.). Once the search process is started, the results will be returned to the user in three separate views:

  • Simple View: a grid where for each found species, a summary of the associated information is shown;
  • Detailed View: a grid where for each found species, an enriched version of the simple information set is returned (e.g. common names in several languages);
  • Images View: each single species is possibly associated to images present in the belonging datasources. By clicking on the image it is possible to open a detailed panel with the complete set of available information.
