Data Management Interest Group (DMI)

This page is devoted to resources and discussion for the DMI Group. Keeping up with data requires certain skills and infrastructure. This Interest Group plans to discuss issues surrounding shared data and the help and information the biodiversity community needs in order to ensure, if possible, that the provider has the most up-to-date versions of their own datasets. We intend to provide a forum for discussion, and act as a resource for guidance to point providers toward potential solutions. Do you need help to re-integrate data into your database? Are you able to help, or know of resources? We invite anyone with an interest in this topic to join us and contribute your observations and potential solutions to this challenging topic. Anyone is welcome to join the interest group.

The interest group plans to schedule regular discussion sessions via Adobe Connect for the purpose of sharing techniques, strategies, uses, improvements, and technology associated with re-integrating enhanced data back into a provider's database. Resources, related documents, and discussion notes are stored below. Our first meeting: Webinar 7 August 2014, 1:00 - 2:00 PM EDT.
