Chapter Abstract
In this first webinar in the Darwin Core Hour series, the basics of how Darwin Core functions in the biodiversity community as a dynamic standard will be covered. Topics will include what the standard consists of, how to use it, how it can be changed, sources of information, and where to go for help.
Presenter: John Wieczorek

Your input:
1) improves Darwin Core documentation (examples, definitions)
2) helps those in the Standards community address gaps and implementation of the standard terms
3) provides a forum for everyone to learn about each others data mapping, data sharing, software needs, standards issues and insights.
4) facilitates higher data quality!
