Abstract

SILVA, Luís Alexandre Estevão da et al. Tool for validation and import in herbarium database. Rodriguésia [online]. 2019, vol.70, e03222017.  Epub June 19, 2019. ISSN 0370-6583.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/2175-7860201970032.

Many biological collections databases feature data quality problems. On the existing computational resources, we present an import tool and data validation. The program applies filters to data submitted through a spreadsheet at the time of data import, streamlining the error-checking process. The validations presented were divided into three categories according to the taxonomic, geographical and general specimen collection data. Its implementation eliminated the errors in the data entry of new vouchers in the Herbarium of the Botanical Garden of Rio de Janeiro.

Keywords : biodiversity database; data quality; herbarium database; herbarium management system.
