Second Marine Biodiversity Data Mobilization Workshop

April 18, 2023 @ 13:00 - April 19, 2023 @ 17:00 CEST

Join the second Marine Biodiversity Data Mobilization Workshop – a contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the Marine Life 2030 Decade Action. The workshop is jointly hosted by CIOOS, Hakai, IOOS, MBON, OBIS-USA, and OTN.

This workshop is intended to be a small hands-on, interactive virtual workshop focused on mobilizing marine biological observation datasets to the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS). The primary objective of the workshop is to help data providers standardize their data according to Darwin Core. This includes species observations from any type of sampling methodologies (e.g. visual surveys, net tows, microscopy, fish trawls, imaging, `omics, acoustics, telemetry). The workshop will be held virtually April 18 – 19, 2023 from 1300 – 1700 ET.
