Title: Darwin Core Hour: GBIF and iDigBio present the Aggregator's Viewpoint
Part ONE: GBIF: free and open access to global biodiversity data
Part TWO: iDigBio - aggregating and enhancing vouchered global biocollections data
The expansive scope of iDigBio’s activities places it in the forefront of national and international digitization and data aggregation efforts. Recognizing the importance of its numerous international partners and encouraged by the NSF to expand international collaborations, iDigBio accepted an invitation to join a digitization symposium featured at the 12th Pacific Science Inter-Congress held at the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji, and to follow the symposium with a digitization workshop for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), in Canberra, Australia.
