I’ve just run a test of the Batch Import feature and it seems to be working correctly. Currently, it requires careful formatting of the submitted CSV file, but when we return to Hawaii we plan to implement a system similar to the IPT system, where content providers can create a metadata file describing the structure of the batch file, and then generate updates on a web server that can be regularly updated and harvested by BioGUID.org. It had been my intention to have most of this implemented before I got on the NOAA ship, but I let it slide because I figured I could finish it on the ship. Little did I realize how painstaking that process would be! To give you an idea how tedious it has been, each keystroke and mouse click takes about 3 seconds through the ship’s internet!
