IMPROVEMENT OF A PLANT GROWTH MODEL RETRIEVAL SYSTEM ON THE INTERNET -DEVELOPMENT OF A MODEL REGISTRATION INTERFACE-
As a part of a plant growth model retrieval system on the Internet, a model registration interface was developed to facilitate registration of new models in the retrieval system. Plant growth models were described in the retrieval system by a relational database with five tables. Two of the tables were Component table and Effector table. Components were important elements constituting the model and Effectors were factors that directly affect the Component. By introducing these two concepts, the retrieval system was able to search models that could give answers to the users questions. However, introduction of Components and Effectors made registration of new models a hard and tedious work. To facilitate the registration work, the developed interface searched models from the model base that were similar to the new one, based on the key words which the model developer gave. The model developer modified one of the similar models thus found out to make it fit to the new model. In this way, registration of new models into the retrieval system was simplified.
