DESCRIPTIONPresented by Greg Reser at the Annual Conference of the Visual Resources Association, March 12-15, 2014 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Session #8: VRA Core 4 Unbound: Expanding Core capabilities through embedded metadata, APIs, and editors ORGANIZER: Trish Rose-Sandler, Center for Biodiversity Informatics, Missouri Botanical Garden MODERATOR: Greg Reser, University of California, San Diego PRESENTERS: Matthias Arnold, University of Heidelberg Greg Reser, University of California, San Diego Trish Rose-Sandler, Center for Biodiversity Informatics, Missouri Botanical Garden Since the publication of the VRA Core 4.0 (Core 4) data standard in 2007 many institutions have developed tools that extend its capabilities either to support a local need or to enable the interaction of Core 4 data with data encoded in other standards. The proliferation of these tools within the last few years illustrate how the Core 4 has moved from a US-based standard developed for a specific audience to having a much more international uptake and even adoption within communities not originally envisioned e.g. biodiversity. The speakers will talk about tools they have developed that help demonstrate how Core 4 can be incorporated within embedded metadata standards; how it can be used in conjunction with scientific data standards; and how a Core 4 editor can easily convert, store, and exchange data in XML.
