Biotics 4: Overview
Biotics 4, the product of a multi-year development and testing
process, is the newest generation of NatureServe's biodiversity data management
software. Built on a sophisticated data model implemented in an Oracle database,
the system incorporates custom applications for spatial data management, tabular
data management, data import/export and reconciliation, and reporting. The spatial
component of the system is a custom geographic information system (GIS) application
that supports basic digital mapping, spatial analyses, and data visualization.
The successor to our previous software package, BCD, Biotics 4 was released
in November 2002 and is currently being installed at natural heritage programs
throughout our Network.
