Bug #4378 (Active): Statistical and graphic capacities of Scratchpads

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-24 14:06

Dear Team,

I wonder if it could be possible to realize some basic stats of graphics using build-in fonctions/module in Scratchpad?

For example, from a table of specimens, to produce a pie chart (linked to a specific page or taxa level) or to calculate a % each taxa among the whole database.

If not, I presume that it is always possible to export the specimen database in XLS sheet, make some calculation outside, produce graphic outside and import this graphic as a image file on the desired page. Am I right?

Best wishes

Bug #4377 (Active): Is it possible to create a taxonomy of localities?

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-24 11:13

Dear team,

It is me again. Following my previous request, I wondered if it could be possible to create a taxonomy of the localities encoded in a Scratchpad site using the Specimen/Observation mode?

This could be useful to have a map showing only the specimens observed on the locality(ies) selected.

Thank you for your big help!

Bug #4376 (Active): Is it possible to show localities on a map filtered on a date / time interval...

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-24 11:08

Dear team,

I am thinking about one topic.

I would like in a Scratchpad using the Specimens/Observation mode, to have a map showing only the localities where specimens have been found/observed at a moment or during an interval of time (one or several selected months/period for example).
Is it possible to make such filtering on observation data before to use the result for the display on a map?

If so, please could you suggest me how to realize such filtering?

Thank you for your help.

Feature #4375 (Active): Create local Catalogue of Life service

Create a local Catalogue of Life service that returns an Excel file capable of being imported into a Scratchpad taxonomy.

Bug #4374 (Active): Species page

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-17 12:36

The Mosquito Taxonomic Inventory does not utilize the machine format for taxon pages. In the case of pages for species to be listed in the side bar under Culicidae classification, it is desirable to use the machine format. A trial species page at http://mosquito-taxonomic-inventory.info/simpletaxonomy/term/8546 shows that the genus, subgenus and species names are not italicised, the subgenus name is not enclosed in parentheses and the authorship does not follow the species name. Request that changes be made that will allow the title of the species page to display the taxon names in italics, subgeneric names in parentheses (not italicised), and the author/date to follow the species name in smaller font size (also not italicised).

Bug #4373 (Active): forum without the "add new comment function"

Scratchpads issue queue - Fri, 2015-04-17 10:13

I have a problem with my forum because the <Add new comment> function doesn't appear. I specify that I tried being logged or not and also I created an other user to test my forum. Do you have a solution??
Thanks a lot

Bug #4372 (Active): unable to import a biological classification

Scratchpads issue queue - Thu, 2015-04-16 14:00

Apologies if you are receiving this issue a second time. Last time when I tried to send it wanted me to log in again but wouldn't accept my details, then vanished.

I am trying to import a biological classification from EOL so I can get something ready for the group. I get the following message:
'The EOL classification service (http://services.eol.org/lifedesk/service.php) does not appear to be running. Please try again later.'
I get the same message if I try the GBIF option and have been trying for a couple of weeks, icluding deleting the page and creating a new one in case I had introduced a bug somehow.

I searched your help pages but found no clue for solving this

I appreciate any help you may offer - or a help link that I have missed.
