OBIS Data Content Enhancement Task Team (DataTT)

Chair: Philip Goldstein (OBIS-USA)

OBIS-DataTT Membership.

The OBIS Data Content Enhancement Task Team (DataTT) addresses issues of capturing more kinds of biogeographic data, with more detail, in standard ways that can apply throughout OBIS communities and Darwin Core communities worldwide. The DataTT guided OBIS’s transition to Ratified Darwin Core in 2012-2014.

OBIS’s use of standards is an essential practice for consistency, quality, and community. By enhancing data content, OBIS continually progresses to reach out for more kinds of data, for more participation, and more applications.

This description of the OBIS DataTT includes reference to the OBIS-ENV-DATA project that constitutes a major portion of the enhancement activities OBIS currently pursues in 2015-2017.

The OBIS Data Content Enhancement Task Team (OBIS-DataTT) has the following terms of reference.
