Demonstration applications Demonstration Applications

Sample applications illustrate the use of uBio services to address access impediments in information retrieval.

uBio name and concept services can be used to access vernacular, nomenclatural and taxonomic concepts to expand name-based searching to include additional terms. Our network interface allows these concepts to be used in your own applications.

Here are some examples:


uBioRSS monitors hundreds of RSS feeds from academic journals, science news, and other sources. It parses any scientific name from these feeds and presents them via classifications for browsing and specific RSS feeds.
uBioPortal is a set of applications and modules that acts as a meta-search engine linking taxonomic intelligence with content served by search engines and expert sources. By indexing the names within expert sites we can redirect users to these sites when a search intersects a relevant taxonomic domain.
BHL Demo applies the TaxonFinder algorithm to selected digitized text to extract taxonomic names. The compilation of names is then cross-checked against current authoratative taxonomies so that the contents of the book may be organized biologically.
