Welcome to the Tests and Assertions Task Group


Link to tests:


The group has been working for over a year to evaluate the tests that have been run by-
  • The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA)
  • The Gblobal Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF)
  • iDigBio
  • Ocean Biogeographic Information Facility (OBIS)
  • Centro de Referência em Informação Ambiental (CRIA)
  • Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation (BISON)
  • Vertnet

and to refine these and new tests to produce a core suite of tests and assertions that can be found at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1uwnUtcMSe88AytUt_mSepeLTz54tMvV9llO2pBnObhE. In the process, we have come up with a standard suite of descriptors for each of the tests.

A suite of test code and test data for each test is in development by iDigBio and hopefully will be be available not long after the core suite of tests are finalised.
