Data entry flow

Guys, maybe I know web systems, I have many doubts about the use of CollectiveAccess, especially in the information input stream.

I am using CA, to create a Virtual Herbarium, with ca  library Darwin Core schema, right for botanical collections.

In my case involves the following profiles:

  • The University having physical herbarium (the owner of the collection)

  • The collectors who do all the process to the preservation of the species (University students) 


  • The botanical material collection,with information on geography and common name of the species.

  • Taxonomic identification,obeying the order, division, class, order, family, genus, species.

  • Pressing (drying)

  • Label

  • Mounting  (voucher specimen)

  • Digitalização

I have many doubts on how launch these data following this dynamic events.

Since the object of the virtual herbarium collection is the grouping of information for each botanical species

If someone is working with the Darwin Core schema, or even something collection that obey a cycle I would greatly appreciate the help.

I even have the database with this information in the standard darwin core, if that helps.

Thanks in advance!
