Once a new dataset has been published by a user, the IPT creates a DarwinCore Archive for this dataset as well as metadata files (EML version and RTF version). However, for the data to be used in the various queries that the ARBIMS portal can perform on it or mapped in its webmapping pages, this data needs to be parsed and stored in the portal's database. This synchronization process is within the realm of portal administration and therefore will be performed by the portal administrator.
As a user, you can only notify the admistrator if you have added a new dataset or alternatively let the automated nightly checks synchronize your data with the portal database.
You can verify that your newly published dataset has been snychronized with portal database by going to these pages and checking if the name of your dataset is in the list.
