Hi TDWG'ers,

Darwin Core (DwC) Hour #4 is almost here: Evolution of DwC Terms and 
Extensions - two extant examples for community input. Go Here for 
Webinar Details and Meeting Link: 

ABSTRACT. Darwin Core Hour #4 shifts focus to understanding how the DwC 
standard terms and extensions evolve. Community input and implementation 
drive development of DwC. For this webinar, we selected 
dwc:preparations, dwc:occurrenceStatus, and dwc:establishmentMeans to 
show the broader community how the process works. In this way, we 
highlight the need for outside input - from those using TDWG standards 
to share biodiversity data. Two presenters, Andrew Bentley and Quentin 
Groom, invite you to join them and bring your TDWG expertise and 
insights to current issues surrounding these terms. Introduction by John 

Please bring or submit questions for open discussions in each webinar: 

When: Tuesday 2 May 2017 5 PM CEST, 11 AM EDT, 10 AM CDT, 3 PM UTC
Where: https://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/room
Please expect this DwC Hour to be 1.5 hours.


 1. Explore the Darwin Core Questions & Answers wiki!
    https://github.com/tdwg/dwc-qa/wiki - where all Darwin Core Hour
    (DwC) materials can be found.
 2. See which of your questions have been asked and answered so far
 3. Submit your question / volunteer (yourself or someone) to do a
    webinar on your darwin core topic: https://tinyurl.com/zja2muz
 4. Here's a list of terms for which DwC recommends use of a controlled
    vocabulary - note many are in the Location class.
 5. See what's inside some of the DwC fields that suggest using a
    controlled vocabulary (data from GBIF, iDigBio, VertNet, and soon
    ALA): https://github.com/tdwg/dwc-qa/tree/master/data
 6. Future DwC Hour webinars coming up feature discussions about the
    GBIF Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT) and Darwin Core, and the
    locality terms and sharing georeferenced locality data.

See you soon!

Happy Darwin Core and Data Quality, :-)
