Export for the Global Plant Initiative / JSTOR

To export the data of the specimen selected in the specimen list according to the Global Plant Initiative / JSTOR choose Data -> Export -> XML  -> GPI / JSTOR ... from the menu. A window will open where you can set some additional options for the export (see below). The data sets will be exported according to the JSTOR Plant Science Handbook (June 2011).

If the data does not fulfill the criteria of the Global Plant Initiative / JSTOR, the errors will be listed as shown below. You have to fix these errors in your data to create a valid export file. To start the export click on the Start export button. The data will be exported into a file in your application directory. Click on the button to inspect the exported data (see below).


If the data are not restricted to names linked to a thesaurus (see option in image above), the export will take information like the family from the linked thesaurus if available (e.g. DiversityTaxonNames). Otherwise information stored in DiversityCollection will be used (if available). If neither is available the export will insert a message like "not assigned" and the error report will contain a message like "Family is missing".
