ABIN WildHealth Community Space Demonstration Video
The WildHealth Community Space is made available by the Australian Biosecurity Intelligence Network WildHealth proof of concept project, and a new video demonstrating its features has been released. The community space enables sharing wildlife data across the sector and is available to researchers nationally to connect on-line, share resources and share data to help protect the natural world, our own health and the agricultural economy.
The on-line database of the Australian Registry of Wildlife Health, developed by Arcitecta, is now integrated within WildHealth. The database is a highly detailed laboratory information management system for wildlife and features mapping capabilities. Incorporation of national animal health data standards within the database is the key to sharing wildlife heath data across sectors.
The video can be viewed on YouTube.

Arcitecta CTO presents to SGI DMF Users Group
Arcitecta CTO Jason Lohrey delivered a keynote presentation at the recent SGI DMF Users Group meeting at Monash University. The presentation was titled "Managing Your Digital Assets - The Crown Jewels", and discussed aspects of traditional file systems, structured databases and digital asset management.
A digital asset embodies an organisation's intellectual property, must often be accessible for a long time, needs open standards for exchange and may need to be repurposed in ways not previously envisaged. The present SGI LiveArc and DMF integration was described and a new "Archive File System" concept was outlined. The Archive File System will be able to "change shape" based on a user's authority, and view configuration, and automatically provide data to users in a transformed state.
