OBIS Nodes Technical Training Course 2014

During this week long course, the participants got familiar with OBIS: the project, the current status of data, examples of use cases of OBIS data and training on how to access the OBIS data via the web portal, web services and database. Training was provided in the OBIS data management practices, quality control tools and data transfer protocols. During the hands-on session, 10 new datasets were formatted, quality controlled and uploaded to the server. There were discussions on how to improve the current OBIS practices, such as e.g. moving to DarwinCore and the use of controlled vocabularies. There were 17 participants, from 13 countries. The group was composed of data managers from existing, new and candidate OBIS nodes.
