AquaCache: The AquaCache tool is accessible through Belgian LifeWatch website at The goal of this tool is to serve as an internal data management tool, helping the involved editors to search through and compare lists and identify possible overlaps and discrepancies between lists available in more than one species register, e.g. on the level of higher classification or the status of a name.

Links to other tools and web services developed within AquaRES will be posted here as they become available.


Fields selection for exchange: To facilitate the exchange of checklist data between FADA, WoRMS and RAMS, both for integration in the AquaCache as for synchronising the content in the participating databases, we rely on the Darwin Core standard. This standard is a collection of terms which is rather extensive. In order to enable the exchange of date we need to ensure however that a minimal set of fields is provided, and we therefore agreed on a standard set of fields that is required and documented this in the worksheet which can be downloaded below.
