Hi Everyone,

Are you interested in data quality? Wondering what sort of automated 
processes might be run against known data sources to help you clean and 
enhance your biodiversity data? Please join us tomorrow, Thursday, May 
28th from 2 - 4 PM EDT for a Webinar and Demo about Kurator.

**Where: **http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/datamgmt

*What's Kurator*? Read all about it here: 

*What to expect*? The first hour will focus on an overall explanation of 
Kurator's "automated workflow for quality control of biodiversity data." 
The software focuses on: checking scientific names, georeferences, and 
collecting event dates. Three Thematic Collection Networks (TCNs) use, 
or are planning to use this software as part of their efforts to provide 
quality data: SCAN TCN 
and InvertEBase TCN 

The second half of this webinar is IT-focused and provides developers 
with a chance to learn more about how to install the software and test 
it on their own using sample data sets from iDigBio or Symbiota.

Many thanks for the concerted efforts of the Kurator software 
development team to put this in-depth presentation together!

See you there!**
