TERN Vocabularies

Submitted by e.chuc on Tue, 12/11/2019 - 09:20

A set of controlled vocabularies to drive TERN's various downstream applications.

TERN vocabularies also serve as an upper vocabulary for the new Ecology Data Platform at TERN. Vocabularies for different ecological data sources will be mapped to the TERN set of vocabularies such as the TERN "Observable properties" for vocabulary/dataset harmonisation.

The redirect should go from http://linked.data.gov.au/def/tern-cv -> http://linkeddata.tern.org.au/viewer/tern/vocabulary/

ROR is a community-led project to develop an open, sustainable, usable, and unique identifier for every research organization in the world.

Between 2016 and 2018, a group of 17 organizations with a shared purpose invested their time and energy into an Org ID initiative, with the goal of defining requirements for an open, community-led organization identifier registry. The initiative was a transparent, accessible process to help work towards a better system for all of our communities.
