The FSC Identikit

Note

We have a forum.

Join us there to ask for help using Identikit, help with creating resources, discuss features, bugs, or anything else related to the software.

The FSC Identikit is an open-source project which anyone is free to get involved in. It is provided as-is and Field Studies Council is not able to provide any support or development for it at this time.

To get started quickly, follow our Quickstart Guide.

The FSC Identikit is a framework for creating online biological identification resources, including multi-access keys.

The genesis of the project was the Field Studies Council's (FSC) Tomorrow's Biodiversity project (funded by Esmée Fairbairn 2013-2017 inclusive). Esmée Fairbairn funded a further year's development of the Identikit (covering 2018) to facilitate rolling the work forward into the HLF-funded FSC BioLinks project which ran from 2018 to the end of 2022.

Prior to March 2018, The FSC Identikit was referred to as 'The Tom.bio ID Visualisation Framework', or variations thereof.

Developers

The repostitory can be cloned thus: git clone https://github.com/FieldStudiesCouncil/tombiovis.git.

If the clone fails, try the following: git clone https://github.com/FieldStudiesCouncil/tombiovis.git --depth 1 --no-single-branch.

The second git command clones the repostiory with a truncated history. This should be fine for most purposes.

Documentation

All documentation for this project is found in the 'documentation' sub-folder and includes the following:

  • Quickstart Guide
  • Getting started (more detailed than the Quickstart Guide)
  • Building a knowledge-base (essential guide for knowledge-base developers)

  • Character scoring (only for those who want more detail on Identikit's mechanism for scoring with multi-access keys)
  • Notes for coders (only for programmers who want to extend or contribute to the Identikit)

We are also working on moving the documentation online so that it will be available here. Currently the following is available:
