Webinar Series Abstract
Darwin Core has become a broadly-used standard for biodiversity data sharing since its inception as a standard by the organization Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) in 2009. Despite, or because of, its popularity, people trying to use the standard continue to have questions about how to use Darwin Core and associated extensions such as Audubon Core, Resource Relationship, and Measurement Or Fact. This webinar series looks at open questions related to Darwin Core. Though the topic is broad, individual chapters in the series will focus on specific topics to any adequate level of depth. We encourage people to bring questions and to have open discussions in each webinar.
In this first webinar in the Darwin Core Hour series, the basics of how Darwin Core functions in the biodiversity community as a dynamic standard will be covered. Topics will include what the standard consists of, how to use it, how it can be changed, sources of information, and where to go for help.
