Yes! It's almost Darwin Core Hour Time.

In this enthralling installment, we will all be getting a closer look at 
Kurator Web (http://kurator.acis.ufl.edu/kurator-web/), and a live demo 
too. Won't you please join us to learn more about this suite of tools 
and how you can use them to enhance your collections and research datasets?

When: Tuesday Oct 24th @ 11 AM EDT, 12 PM ART, 3 PM UTC, 5 PM CEST
Where: http://idigbio.adobeconnect.com/room
Presenter: John Wieczorek Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard 
University; VertNet
Title: Darwin Core Hour: Kurator Web - for Cleaner Biodiversity Data

Abstract: When we think about biodiversity data and its use, we often 
immediately wonder about the data quality and how to improve it. The 
Kurator project is one of the initiatives addressing this issue, and 
aims at building data quality control and enhancement tools that can be 
readily used by people with different technical skill levels. One such 
tool is the Kurator Web application. This tool allows users to execute 
web-based data quality improvement workflows on biodiversity data, 
especially on data shared using Darwin Core terms, without the need for 
programming expertise. In this webinar we will demonstrate the use of 
Kurator Web to run pre-existing data quality workflows, some of which 
include: aligning datasets with Darwin Core terms, comparing unique 
values in datasets with controlled vocabularies, and providing 
suggestions for improvements for existing data. Finally, we will provide 
some context on how these tools can integrate with broader workflows and 
some perspective on the future of biodiversity data quality.
