Dear Geonode users and developers,

Are you aware of any attempt of integrating the Darwin core [1] metadata standard in geonode? It is a metadata standard designed to describe biodiversity data, mostly occurrence (observations in time and space). GBIF [2] is one of the main efforts for collecting and sharing biodiversity information, and comes with its own tool for metadata management, the IPT [3]. As I understand, a Darwin core archive is usually described by the EML (Ecological metadata standard)[4] format, and compatible with ISO 19139. Any feedback?

Thank you,

Matteo De Stefano
