Information systems at the Conservatory and Botanical Garden of the City of Geneva

Just 20 years ago, a collaborator of the CJB published her thesis work "A botanical information system: Contribution to the opening-up of information"* 1. Since the publication of this totally innovative study for the botany (use of the concept of relational databases in order to integrate different research projects and collections management within the same system, in order to share concepts, data, methods and applications), the CJB have constantly invested in the development of what we now call the Geneva Botanical Information System (SIBG).

*1 ZELLWEGER, C. (1994). Un système d’information botanique : contribution au désenclavement de l’information. Thèse n° 400 de la Faculté des sciences économiques et sociales de l’Université de Genève. 190 pp.

Today the SIBG allows:

• The management of herbaria (field data, herbarium sample, collectors, loans, etc.); • The management of living collections (accessions, specimens in cultures, index seminum, seed bank, etc.); • The management of information related to scientific projects such as checklists, floras, taxonomic treatments (nomenclature, synonymy, localities, etc.).

Informations provided by the vast majority of the databases proposed online by the CJB (http://www.ville-ge.ch/cjb/bd_en.php) is extracted from the SIBG.

Botalista: a management tool intended to be made available to all

Since SIBG is based on so-called "proprietary" technologies, the CJB have decided to develop a new management tool, called Botalista, that relies exclusively on free software: PostgreSQL, Java and AngularJS.

Once operational, Botalista will be offered to botanical institutes as an “open source” resource.
