We would need a term to store the name of the person who has digitised a
sample. The current Darwin Core does not seem to include such term.
Dublin Core's "creator" is what we'd use.
I wonder why not all of the Dublin Core's 15 basic terms are included in
Darwin Core terms web page, but just a subset of them, which subset
seems to be somewhat random to me?
We could also use the DC term "contributor" or something for someone who
has proof-read the digitisation result.
I understand that nothing breaks if we use dc:creator because the Dublin
Core schema loads it along with other elements. But because of this
omission some applications like GBIF IPT omit it from their mapping
capabilities, which is a problem.
Your advise is sppreaciated, Hannu
