Preliminary checks and imports of “fundamental data”

Note: Import only by SSHADE database structure manager Note: follow the order

Species

  • Check if the “species” needed for your sample are already in the fundamental databases “molecules”, “mineral” or “atoms” using GhoSST (or pre-SSHADE) interface (Menu: Producer/Full Search)
  • If not, prepare it/them in the corresponding XML files :
    • template_species_xxx_commented.xml (with xxx = molecules, atoms, or minerals)
    • or any specialized template or existing species XML file
  • Test and debug the file(s) (Producer/Import simulation)
  • Send the file(s) of the new species to SSHADE database structure manager (who will test and import them)
  • Take note of their “UID” or get them using GhoSST (or pre-SSHADE) interface (Data/Search)

Laboratory

  • Check if your “laboratory” is already in the “laboratories” database using GhoSST interface (Producer/Full Search)
  • If not, prepare it in the corresponding XML file:
    • template_laboratory.xml
    • or any specialized template or existing laboratory XML file
  • Test and debug the file (Producer/Import simulation)
  • Send the file of the new laboratory to SSHADE database structure manager (who will test and import it)
  • Take note of its “UID” or get it using GhoSST interface (Producer/Full Search)

Instrument

  • Check if your “instrument” is already in the “instruments” database using GhoSST interface (Producer/Full Search)
  • If not, prepare it/them in the corresponding XML file :
    • template_instrument_commented.xml
    • or any specialized template or existing instrument XML file
  • Test and debug the file(s) (Producer/Import simulation)
  • Send the file(s) of the new instrument to SSHADE database structure manager (who will test and import them)
  • Take note of their “UID” or get it using GhoSST interface (Producer/Full Search)

Publications

  • Check if your “publications” are already in the “publications” database using GhoSST (or pre-SSHADE) interface (Producer/Full Search)
  • If not, prepare it/them in the corresponding XML file:
    • template_publications_commented.xml
    • or any specialized template or existing publication XML file
  • Test and debug the file(s) (Producer/Import simulation)
  • Send the file(s) of the new publication to SSHADE database structure manager (who will test and import them)
  • Take note of their “UID” or get them using GhoSST interface (Producer/Full Search)



Matters, Sample and Spectra Data imports

Note: Import only by data providers (local database manager)

Matters

  • Check if your “matters” needed for your sample are already in the corresponding “matters” database using GhoSST (or pre-SSHADE) interface (Producer/Full Search)
  • If not, prepare it/them in the corresponding XML files :
    • template_matter_xxx_commented.xml (with xxx = fluids, minerals, meteorites, or carbonaceous)
    • or any specialized template or existing matter XML file
  • Test and debug the file(s) (Producer/Import/Matters w. 'simulation mode' checked)
  • Import the new matter(s) w. 'simulation mode' unchecked (limited to local database manager)
  • Take note of their “UID” or get them using GhoSST (or pre-SSHADE) interface (Data/Search)

Sample

  • Check if your “sample” or any “parent sample” or “material” needed for your sample are already in the database using GhoSST (or pre-SSHADE) interface (Producer/Full Search). Take note of their “UID”.
  • Make a sample file with the corresponding XML template:
    • template_sample_commented.xml
    • or any specialized template or existing sample XML file
  • Make the necessary “block copy” in the XML file if you have multiple Layers/Materials/Constituents/Species, ...
  • Test and debug the file(s) (Producer/Import/Sample w. 'simulation mode' checked)
  • Import the new sample w. 'simulation mode' unchecked (limited to local database manager)
  • Take note of its “UID” or get it using GhoSST interface (Data/Search)

Experiment + instrument parameters + spectra

  • Check if any “parent experiment”, “parent_spectrum”, or "bandlist" needed for your experiment-spectra are already in the database using GhoSST interface (Producer/Full Search). Take note of their “UID”.
  • Make a sample file with the corresponding XML template:
    • template_experiment_spectra_commented.xml
    • or any specialized template or existing experiment_spectra XML file
  • Make the necessary “block copy” in the XML file if you have multiple Spectra (and other lower levels options)
  • Test and debug the file(s) (Producer/Import/Matters w. 'simulation mode' checked)
  • Import the new sample w. 'simulation mode' unchecked (limited to local database manager)
  • Take note of its “UID” or get it using GhoSST interface (Data/Search)

Note: You will need the laboratory_UID, instrument_UID, sample_UID, and possibly some publication_UID and constituent_UID (microscope case)

  • Test and debug the file(s) (Producer/Import/Experiment & Spectra w. 'simulation mode' checked)
  • Zip the XML file with your spectral files
  • Import the new experiment with its spectra (limited to local database manager)
  • Verify that your spectra (and sample) are in the database and that all values are correctly entered using GhoSST (or pre-SSHADE) interface (Producer/Full Search)
