Additional requirements

  • Support recommendations by GBIF and TDWG:
    • support Darwin Core extensions
    • there is a great primer on sampling databy GBIF available. It describes a small but essential set of terms used in sampling campaigns (asterix indicates new term in addition to what is available in Darwin Core):
        1. eventID: an identifier for the set of information associated with an Event; may be a global unique identifier or an identifier specific to the data set.

        2. parentEventID*: an identifier for the broader Event that groups this and potentially other Events. May be a globally unique identifier or an identifier specific to the data set.

        3. samplingProtocol: the name of, reference to, or description of the method or protocol used during a sampling event.

        4. sampleSizeValue*: a numeric value for a measurement of the size (time duration, length, area, or volume) of a sample in a sampling event. A sampleSizeValue must have a corresponding sampleSizeUnit.

        5. sampleSizeUnit*: the unit of measurement of the size (time duration, length, area, or volume) of a sample in a sampling event. A sampleSizeUnit must have a corresponding sampleSizeValue.

        6. organismQuantity*: a number or enumeration value for the quantity of organisms. An organismQuantity must have a corresponding organismQuantityType.

        7. organismQuantityType*: the type of quantification system used for the quantity of organisms. An organismQuantityType must have a corresponding organismQuantity

      • There are two terms to be used in pairs: sampleSizeValue together with sampleSizeUnit, and organismQuantity with organismQuantityType
