Dataset Annotation in EML 2.2

Feedback form is now closed.
Dataset annotation is the addition of a critical or explanatory note to improve discovery and understanding. Additional power is gained by annotating specific parts of a dataset with external vocabularies that have been curated within scientific domains. In this session, we will summarize the current use of vocabularies in LTER datasets (e.g., as “keywords”), and illustrate how this can be enhanced with the more detailed annotation features of EML 2.2. Expected discussion topics include clarification of annotation concepts, mechanisms LTER sites could employ to take advantage of annotation enhancements, choosing vocabularies to use and support, and potentially necessary software tools.
