Hi Everyone!

At this Darwin Core Hour (DCH): it is VertNet's turn to share what happens to museum specimen data when it is shared with them as data aggregator.

Please join us in six days for: DCH 7 (Part Three!): The Aggregator's Viewpoint - (More Than Vert)Net
When: Tuesday, August 29th, 2PM EDT, 3PM (Buenos Aires), 7 PM (London), 6 PM UTC (18:00)

Presenters (VertNet): John Wieczorek - Information Architect, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, Berkeley
Moderators: Paula Zermoglio, Deborah Paul

Abstract. In this Darwin Core Hour we will follow up in the series on aggregator perspectives with a view from VertNet. Though the taxonomic scope of VertNet as a biodiversity data aggregator is focused on Chordates, VertNet serves a broader biodiversity data mobilization role that has no taxonomic or geographic boundaries. As an Associate Participant in GBIF, VertNet is also involved in a wide variety of other community services, including the development of, promotion of, and training on biodiversity data standards and data quality. In this webinar we will explore the series of services that VertNet provides, such as migration and data quality processes, as well as its unique extracting and searching capabilities, which allow content such as trait data (e.g., body mass and length) to be sought and retrieved. We will discuss VertNet's role in the broader data mobilization framework and how that relates to other biodiversity data sharing initiatives.
As always, we encourage people to bring or submit questions and to have open discussions in each webinar.
