Riede, K. (2001): The Global Register of Migratory Species (GROMS): Present Status and Perspectives In: Riede, Klaus (Ed.): New Perspectives for Monitoring Migratory Animals - Improving Knowledge for Conservation. - Münster (Landwirtschafts-verlag), pp. 33 - 42
The aim and present status of the Global Register of Migratory Species (GROMS) is summarised in relation to other biodiversity informatics projects. It is a hybrid system, which connects a relational database with a geo-graphical information system (GIS). Complete mapping of migration requires a time axis, which does not form part of routine GIS operations. A geodata model for point observation data with time codes is presented. It is spe-cially suited for managing distribution data of migratory species, but is also applicable to any other biodiversity data set including geographic data. A Java-based graphical user interface for visualization of maps on the World Wide Web is presented. It is compatible with Open GIS specification, which allows connection to a wide variety of other geodata sets.
