TDWG / GBIF: Data Use Stories
We aim to capture data user stories in a practical, plain language in order to better understand the specific needs of data users. Past and present, successful and failed data use attempts are equally welcome. We will be looking for the ways to improve your data use experiences. We aim at building a public collection of data use examples that would be helpful for data holders, for data aggregators, and for you to demonstrate the spectrum of data relevance, purpose, and data analyses. You can see your and other stories here: https://goo.gl/rE1dSx. The e-mail addresses are not displayed.
