[tdwg-content] Darwin Core classes and dcterms:location

Hi Tim,

I was looking at this page - http://dublincore.org/schemas/xmls/ - which links to the same XSDs as you have. However, none of these XSD files describe the location class (or a location element) - and indeed, none of these seem to describe any classes at all. Hence my confusion and this email.

Hi Kim

I’d expect the following:

DC terms: http://dublincore.org/schemas/xmls/qdc/2008/02/11/dcterms.xsd

DC elements: http://dublincore.org/schemas/xmls/qdc/dc.xsd

Where are you finding your Darwin Core xsd please?

I hope this helps,

Hi there,

I am working on a profile of Darwin Core for a metadata repository, and am trying to add mandatory elements to the location class. However, because it is a Dublin Core class, the Darwin Core xsd points me to a file titled "dublin_core.xsd". I cannot seem to find this file, despite digging through what I can find of available Dublin Core xsd files. Although I'm not the most technical, I also believe this will be necessary for adding these changes to our repository (based on GeoNetwork).

I was wondering whether someone could send this file to me or otherwise point me in the correct direction?

Thanks very much,

Kim Mortimer
