Hi Jamie,

I have mocked up this example, but I am not sure it is what the standard
authors were intending. See my post on December 23rd.

Here is my example

can click through the various parts via uriburner


I also have a lot of species information in RDF, (about 2 million triples)
but it is not in DarwinCore at:


The about page is here: http://about.geospecies.org/

This data set is part of the Linked Open Web or LOD, which is explained
here: http://linkeddata.org/

Here is the diagram of the Linked Open Data Cloud:

I have some examples of SPARQL queries here:

Here the page for one of my species http://lod.geospecies.org/ses/iuCXz.html

Here is the RDF for that species http://lod.geospecies.org/ses/iuCXz.rdf

I have tried to follow the DarwinCore as close as I can without breaking
what I have working.

In the future, I plan to rework my occurrence RDF into something like my
example above, but with some additional fields.

I think I can come up with a version of RDF for occurrences in DarwinCore
that also follows Linked Data best practices.

Hope this helps. :-)

- Pete
