You're invited to: Darwin Core Hour: Even Simple is Hard
When: 7 Mar 2017 @ 11 am EST, 4 PM UTC
The online meeting space we use will hold up to 500 people - so please
invite your colleagues to join!
In this 2nd chapter of the Darwin Core Hour series, we will glance at
the list of Darwin Core terms that are recommended to be populated with
values from *controlled vocabularies*. From that list we’ll look at some
basic terms (e.g., dcterms:type, dwc:basisOfRecord, etc.) for which
there are clearly recommended controlled vocabularies.
For the best Darwin Core Hour experience, please add your input here

We will explore how controlled vocabularies are used in practice and how
usage differs from the recommendations. We’ll discuss what the
consequences might be of not following controlled vocabularies, and the
converse - what the consequences might be of doing so. We’ll look at
some of the secrets of how aggregators deal with the problem and the
lessons we can learn from them. Finally, we will review questions that
have been submitted related to this particular subject and open the
webinar for further discussion.
