Hello to all BID folks!
Got 3D data and image files? Or maybe you will in the future. How are
you sharing, storing, and managing this information? Wondering what
others are doing to make media, and 3D in particular, more accessible?
From the scientific collections perspective, please join us for our
upcoming Darwin Core Hour Webinar: Audubon Core and 3D Biodiversity
Data: Metadata, Practice, and Unification of Efforts
We encourage people to bring or submit questions for discussion section
of webinar. https://bit.ly/dwchour-input
Date: Tuesday 21 November 2017
Time: 3pm EST, 12pm PST, 5pm ART, 9pm CET, 20:00 UTC
Abstract: A growing mode of digitization of natural history collection
objects is 3D digitization, which includes three main acquisition
techniques: surface scanning (structured light or laser scanners),
volumetric scanning (microCT or MRI), and photogrammetry (structure from
motion). There is now burgeoning interest in and tremendous need for
describing 3D data files with standard vocabularies in the interest of
promoting broad accessibility and long-term digital preservation.
Audubon Core is an existing vocabulary and extension to DarwinCore that
is used to describe digital media files representing natural history
objects. It is not an entirely new vocabulary with many terms borrowed
from Dublin Core, Darwin Core and more. It also intended to describe
different kinds of digital data representing different creation methods
and file formats. We overview several different 3D data collection
modalities specifying the details needed for understanding how 3D data
was generated and processed. We investigate the utility of Audubon Core
for describing these 3D modalities. Questions we ask are which existing
terms can be used for describing new 3D modalities, whether new terms
are needed, whether certain 3D modalities need specific terms not
applicable to other modalities, what 3D data formats should be
emphasized for preservation and access, and how to pursue formally
acquiring new terms either through creation of new vocabularies or
extending existing ones.

Darwin Core Hour Series Abstract:
Darwin Core has become a broadly-used standard for biodiversity data
sharing since its inception as a standard by the organization
Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG) in 2009. Despite, or because
of, its popularity, people trying to use the standard continue to have
questions about how to use Darwin Core and associated extensions. This
webinar series looks at open questions related to Darwin Core. Though
the topic is broad, individual chapters in the series will focus on
specific topics to any adequate level of depth. We encourage people to
bring or submit questions and to have open discussions in each webinar

See you soon!
