Organised as part of the CESP2017 project "Establishing a national node for Chile to enhance Latin America regional capacity", this workshop will be held at the Hotel Fundador in Serarrano, Chile between the 23rd and 25th of April 2018. The event is primarily aimed at managers of biological collections from all over Chile. Participants are invited to attend either by nomination or invitation form. The project will include contributions from GBIF Argentina, GBIF Spain, GBIF Ecuador and SiB Colombia in attendance.
At the end of the workshop, participants will be familiar with the process of publishing data, namely occurrence and species checklists in the GBIF network.
Training will focus on:
- Describing a dataset using appropriate metadata standard
- Cleaning data with appropriate tools, standardizing data using the Darwin Core standard
- Finalising the process by publishing datasets in the GBIF network using the Integrated Publishing Toolkit - IPT of GBIF that will be installed in servers of the Ministries of Environment of Chile and Ecuador.
This Workshop will increase visibility of biodiversity data collected within the framework of an investigation or from biological collections deposited in institutions including museums or universities. Partners will be able to access online resources generated during this event.
