Abstract


At the TDWG Meeting in Florence, Italy, the Symposium on Data Quality raised a lot of interest and had many contributions. Those present were interested in a continued discussion on the topic and, during the meeting, it was decided that an Interest Group (IG) on Data Quality would be proposed to the TDWG Executive Committee.

After the meeting an Interest Group on Data Quality was created within the GBIF nodes group using its community site tool for discussion http://community.gbif.org/pg/groups/21292/biodiversity-data-quality-interest-group/.

Both groups agreed to merge and prepare a proposal for an IG at TDWG, while adopting GBIF's community site tool as the communication means.

During the TDWG Meeting 2014 an agenda for the coming months will be discussed. Anyone interested in this topic is welcome to attend.
