Work Session Outputs
The 2013 Dataversity Workshop is a collaboration between NIWA and Dataversity. It is organised by Jochen Schmidt of NIWA, James Lambie of Horizons and Dan Randow of Dataversity.
This workshop will give you two things you can use to improve biodata management in your organisation.
The workshop will focus on the Species Occupancy Data Platform (aka Biodata Services Stack or BSS) that is being developed by a NIWA-led group.
The BSS aims to create a showcase for interoperable biodata. The showcase will aggregate species occupancy data from around New Zealand to provide a core dataset for biodiversity and biosecurity modelling and reporting.
To get started the BSS team needs your input into two key questions.
Working on these questions in the workshop will enable you to directly contribute to a real piece of infrastructure that will be of practical use to your organisation.
Focusing on the BSS will provide tangible problems that will keep the conversations focused on practical solutions.
This will give you a chance to share and gain useful ideas, tools and inspiration. You will be able to apply these things immediately in your organisation, to improve data management, and prepare your organisation to use and contribute data to the BSS.
The workshop will deal with topics like these.
Some programme details are still being finalised. Please check again for final details.
