Frictionless Darwin Core

DarwinCore Archive as Frictionless Data Package

Github repository

A tool converting Darwin Core Archive into Frictionless Data Package.

DarwinCore standard, created and maintained by Biodivesity Informatics Standards(aka TDWG), is used to publish Life Sciences data about observations, collections specimens, species checklists and sampling events. DarwinCore Archive(DwCA), a bundle of biodiversity data and metadata files, is well established mechanism for publishing or using data in Global Biodiversity Information Facility and other Life Sciences networks.

Frictionless Data Package is an emerging, domain agnostic, data standard that offers a variety of cross technology tools.

Bridging these two data ecosystems is our vision. This project is supported by Open Knowledge Foundation and funded under the Frictionless Data Tool Fund.
