Greetings GBIF Family,
Many of you are actively capturing all sorts of data in your databases to publish to various places. We can all put our data together into one harmonized pile because … standards!
If you are interested in where our data standards come from, like Darwin Core and Audubon Core, you have an opportunity to learn more throughout the month of November. Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary. Find out how these standards help make our data interoperable, and how you can help achieve that goal.
Where: Working Sessions for the Interest and Task Groups from TDWG.
When: Wednesdays and Thursdays in November, see
TDWG 2021 November Working Sessions Schedule
What Topics?: See the Sessions Lists
How to Register (it’s free)!
Just a few of the topics you might find interesting include:
- People in Biodiversity Data: sharing the disambiguation work
- Hands-on session on standardization of biological interactions data
- Collection Descriptions Interest Group
- Plant Phenology Standards Task Group
- Machine Observations Interest Group
- Views (that’s image views) Controlled Vocabularies Task Group
The Working Sessions Organizers have done a great job organizing these and they are ready for any questions: send email to WrkSessCoord@tdwg.org
From all of us at TDWG and all who create, manage, and use biodiversity data – thanks!
Please invite your colleagues, students, and citizen scientists too!
Debbie, et al at TDWG
