Hello ECN!

One week from today - find out precisely where you (or those entomological creatures) 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 issues.

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