- Austrian development
- Objects are brought to a collection by collectors at a locality during an excursion or a project including reference to literature and taxon.
- BioOffice can manage the entire loan including history (which object was when and where?)
- References to literature can be managed with BioOffice.
- fully integrated GIS for the administration of the locality where objects where found.

- Multi database support. With the same software installation, multiple databases can be used locally, on network servers or over the Internet.
- In the tables you can search for text in any column.
- Columns can be sorted and filtered.
- Anytime you can adapt the GUI ( surface of the software) with a few clicks (selection which fields are displayed or not) permanently saved or even temporary for special data entry.
- Adjustments for fielddescriptions are no more per collection ( BioOffice 2 ), but per user.
- Colors individually customizable for each user.
- Support for small screens as well as multiple screens.
- Runs on different operating systems like Windows, MacOS, Linux and more.
- mySQL, mariaDB, MSSQL, H2 and more can be used as database.
- BioOffice 3.1 will support SwissCollNet.
- BioOffice 3.1 can work with data in the cloud, so no own database server with backup must be operated.
- BioOffice 3.1 will provide an interface to publish BioOffice data on the Internet.
- Centrally manage information about evidence, observations, specimens, collection, retention, and a host of other attributes.
- Multimedia files Photos, soundtracks, videos or even text documents can be linked to each object.
This enables you to enter all the relevant information about an object at a central location.
- Inventory numbers in different formats.
- For the geology the chronostratigraphy as well as the lithostratigraphy is managed.
- Standard GIS functionality (Zoom, Pan).).
- Display any number of map layers in a variety of formats, including ESRI Shapefile, Geotiff, Web Feature Service, Web Map Tile Service.
- For the reference systems, EPSG-Codes are used, thus a large number
of cartographic projections and spatial reference systems used worldwide are available.
- Creation of distribution maps by mouse click..
Create distribution maps for species, taxonomic units or freely definable query results at the click of a mouse.
- Export query results in the ESRI shapefile format.
Taxonomy and systematics
- Taxonomy and Systematics Collect information from the subspecies to the realm.
- Taxa catalogs Working with extensive art lists can be very cumbersome.
BioOffice therefore allows you to summarize taxa in the form of catalogs. In such catalogs arbitrary taxa
(independent of biological systems) can be summarized. For mapping projects, e.g. Lists of relevant (expected in a field)
species are summarized. The use of such catalogs helps to simplify and speed up data entry
- Synonym management As many synonyms as possible can be recorded for each taxon.
This allows you to centrally manage information about synonymous names of a taxon.
For queries, synonymous tax names can be automatically taken into account.
- Ecological information on every species
Collect basic information about ecological claims and relationships, as well as about the distribution of the recorded taxa.
- Red ListsManage levels of risk of the individual species in the form of area or project-related catalogs with the required coding
and the corresponding descriptions as well as the causes of endangerment.
- Freely definable catalogs for further attributes and properties of the taxa, e.g. Habitats, soil types etc.
- Multimedia filesPhotos, soundtracks, videos or even text documents can be linked to each taxon.
This way, you can enter all the relevant information for a species at a central location. See Multimedia
- Distribution maps and object lists at the click of a mouseStarting from the Taxon Explorer, you can call up distribution maps and
/ or object lists for each taxon using a context menu that can be called up with the right mouse button.
- Capture of location coordinates as points..
- Localization Input of location coordinates via the keyboard or via localization on the map.
- Administration of localities in catalogs For a clear administration of the localities, each locality can be assigned to a catalog.
- Combination of spatial and content criteria in the search for a location
Simple selection of localities via form filter
- Simple export of localities into the ESRI shapefile format, CSV or as KML
- Simple display of all object records to a locality via the context menu based on local lists or maps.
- A loaned object can not be borrowed again until the object is back in the museum and was booked out in the loan.
- Objects can also be borrowed that are not recorded in the BioOffice.
- Printing of the loan in the desired language
- Depending on the loan, the object returns can be written off individually. The progress in %> indicates the loan status.
- Dunning with reminder date can be defined per loan.
- Query for arbitrary attribute combinations..
- Query according to degree of danger.
- Query for properties.
- Query by taxa catalog.
- Combination of attribute attributes with spatial query criteria via the GIS module.
- Different ways of processing query results in the form of detail forms, reports, export files.
- Automatic consideration of synonymous taxa in the query result possible.
Any number of multimedia files can be attached to the following classes. This way, you can enter all the relevant information for a species at a central location.
As multimedia files you can store any files like
- Office Documents
References to literature
An unlimited number of citations can be attached to the following classes, which are also provided with a role.
Catalogs are available for the following classes
- Taxon - Catalog
- Excursion - Catalog
- Locality - Catalog
- Literatur - Catalog
- Object - Collection grouped by collection types
- Simple and secure data exchange via your own BioOffice exchange format. Through the Biooffice exchange format,
the data exchange between BioOffice users works without further knowledge of the data model at the click of a mouse.
The identification of the individual data records via GUIDs prevents redundancies.
It is possible to view and edit the data in the exchange file BEFORE importing. During the import,
the data can still be compared with the data in the target database.
- Import of existing data with the help of an import wizard.
- Save once set import assignments for multiple use.
- Exporting Data Data can be exported to various places in the program. Export formats: ESRI shapefile format,
KML, BioOffice interchange format, CSV, Excel, vCards, dbf (Taxa Endangered Table) or as a report.
- Easy data exchange between programs via the Windows clipboard.
- Identification of records via GUID. In BioOffice, records at all content levels are identified by GUIDs (Globaly Unique Identifier).
This makes it possible to exchange data (export and re-import) without creating redundancies.
Workers can work together to build large volumes of data (offline edit data), regardless of physical access to a common data source.
Predefined interfaces for data import / export facilitate collaboration even beyond network boundaries.
The combination of different databases for large-scale evaluations is easily possible.
