Greetings TDWG!

One week from today - find out precisely where you are - via Darwin Core 
Hour #6:
Where am I, exactly? Darwin Core Georeferencing Terms

In this chapter of the Darwin Core Hour series, we will look in depth at 
two Darwin Core georeferencing terms that can be confusing when sharing 
location data: coordinateUncertaintyInMeters and coordinatePrecision. We 
will cover these specific Location terms, along with related terms 
needed to understand their definitions, importance, and uses.  Finally, 
we will use these terms to demonstrate the process by which community 
feedback leads to improved Darwin Core documentation. Please bring your 
insights, community experience, and questions surrounding locality data 

Presenters:  David Bloom, John Wieczorek
Date, Time: Tuesday, 11 July at 8am PDT, 11am EDT, 12pm GMT-3
