In a three-part approach (symposium+survey+interest group meeting), organizers Nicole Fisher (CSIRO) and Deborah Paul (iDigBio), Shari Ellis (iDigBio), speakers, survey takers, and event participants seek to provide an in-depth look at data providers' use of 1) aggregator data quality feedback and 2) various transcription services. The goals are to coalesce what we know about local collections and their experiences trying to use data quality feedback from aggregators or what happens when they try to integrate data coming back from transcription done via crowdsourcing.
Data collected through these events can be used to inform future efforts aimed at streamlining the biodiversity data pipeline. In other words, going forward, we need to make it easier to re-integrate data. But to do that strategically, we need to know exactly what the hurdles are, what the skills and software needs are, and what is currently working, and not.
