ECAT Name Finder
A simple html client to the name finding webservices hosted at GBIF. These indexing services try to locate and extract scientific names within a text document. The global names architecture (GNA) has defined a standard Name Finding API that our services adhere to. Currently we are hosting 2 finding services using different algorithms that you can use with the client:
1. uBio's TaxonFinder: A service wrapping the original uBio TaxonFinder.
2. Lucene Name Indexer: A java implementation based on Apache Lucene by GBIF that consume documents in many file formats. This service is still considered experimental
