A new publication in Plos 1
by Allan Koch Veiga and others, lays out a Conceptual Framework for
quality assessment and management of biodiversity data. This is a large
piece of work that has taken several years to develop and arises out
Allan's doctoral thesis from the University of Sao Paulo.
The document lays out a framework for data quality - whether it is users
looking for data of a certain quality for their use, aggregators looking
at presenting the data in a more consistent data quality framework,
technicians building tools and services, or data custodians wanting to
improve the quality of their own data.
This document is a key output from the TDWG Data Quality Interest Group
and is a framework around which other products are being worked on and
will be produced in the near future, including a fitness for use
backbone (FFUB), tools and profiles based on the framework; a consistent
set of core data quality tests and assertions based on Darwin Core
terms; Fitness of use Use Case library and tools; and controlled
vocabularies linked to many of the Darwin Core terms.
