Add or edit catalogue entries
The information to be provided for a catalogue entry consists of three
parts, to be entered in three panels:
All fields labelled with * are mandatory. The
entry will not be saved until all mandatory fields have been filled out.
- a general description of the entry,
- identification of a contact person for the resource,
- resource specific properties.
The resource name should uniquely identify the resource. A general
description should be provided in the description field. One or more
resource domains and keywords should be selected.
The information entered here should identify a contact person for the
resource, e.g. an instrument PI or a service operator.
Resources have been assigned to four categories: model, data, instrument
and service. If a resource falls into more than one category, please
create multiple entries identifying the resource type in the resource
name and/or description. Each resource type is characterised by a
specific set of information fields. When selecting a resource type, the
page will refresh to reflect the input fields relevant to the selected
Model, data and instrument resources
have one field in common: "Available through". The items listed in the
corresponding selection menu are service resources that have been
entered previously. Selecting one or more entries indicates that the
resource to be added or edited is available in some form through the
selected service(s). Examples are: a dataset can be browsed on a data
service, a model can be run on an application server, real time images
or data of an instrument can be viewed on a web site. While the catalogue
is being populated, services will be added, so check regularly if a
service has been entered in the catalogue (or prompt the service owner
or operator to do so).
This resource type identifies services that implement
multiple models and/or datasets. Individual models and
datasets in the catalogue can be linked to services that
provide access to them.
