Notes on Scratchpads

The proposal idea I sent to the UM Herbarium involves a natural history application of Drupal called Scratchpads. I am really not big on the name but here are a few notes from a paper they published:

- Sandbox site with login

- List of all modules used by scratchpads.

- Paper: Scratchpads: a data-publishing framework to build, share and manage information on the diversity of life

TAXONOMY RELATED PARTS

Left And Right, a module for revamping large taxonomies. You must replace the "taxonomy.module"

Can take in taxonomic vocabs from EOL. "This service supplies terms and associated
metadata (authority, rank and synonymy) in an RDF representation of the Taxonomic Concept Schema" see below for screenshots.

CONTENT TYPES and MODULES

Character project - didn't expect this, don't know what it is. Associate matrix data with taxa nodes? Here's a better writeup the following screenshot:

iSpecies Cache - custom module (?) for caching data from web services

Location and Specimen -> we've known about these for a while. DarwinCore implementation for collections.

Phylogenetic tree - Display widget for improved viewing of large taxonomic trees

Auto Tagging - uses the drupa module

EOL's classification module - "Written by EOL, this improves the management of taxonomic classifications."

--------------------------------------------------------

Screenshots of the taxonomic import screen from Scratchpads Sandbox site:
- I've requested information on the module dependencies for this functionality.
- Once you log in with the test information, create an empty vocabulary and go to Import.

And here's the product:

Once you populate a taxonomy, the Scratchpad will create a page aggregated information for the terms. For example, here is the page for Amorpha canescens. Note, that I created a specimen record for Amorpha canescens (a plant I am familiar with from my bee-studying days.)
