Time to renew leadership and objectives of the group - Call for applications

Dear Biodiversity Data Integration IG members, 

Disciplinary groups play a pivotal role in the RDA ecosystem. Not only they provide a mechanism for engaging with the outputs of the RDA community, they are instrumnetal in providing input to the cross-cutting technical and socio-cultural groups.The number disciplinary groups has significantly increased over the last few years, from a handful (the biodiversity community was there from the start) to around 20 Interest Groups.

Using R to manage metadata and promote interoperability (FDI-WG)

Dear IG's / WG's,

We would like to invite you to an RDA related event that we believe to be relevant to your activities; "Use R to manage metadata of especially time-series (in our case related to Tuna Fisheries) and comply with OGC standards while using controlled vocabularies." 

Most of the presented software is Open Source, and we will demonstrate how it can help (you) to manage time-series and geospatial data. We welcome feed-back, and if this of your interest, please consider to join the FDI-WG

Demo you Software at RDA: Better Description/ Retrieval of Online Scientific Data

Dear Colleagues,
there is an *opportunity to showcase your software* (prototype pr
mature) to:
- enhance the authoring of comprehensive metadata using
community-endorsed standards
- to ensure the annotation of data with terms from standard ontologies
and terminologies, and
- to aid the identification and retrieval of relevant datasets for
exploration and re-analysis.
