GBIF GNA Profile Reference Guide for Darwin Core Archives

Remsen, David P; Robertson, Tim; Döring, Markus

This reference guide provides an overview of the set of terms and extensions that are supported by GBIF. This collection is sometimes referred to as the “GNA Profile.” The acronym “GNA” refers to the “Global Names Architecture”: an effort among a group of partnering biodiversity informatics initiatives including GBIF to develop standardised methods, practices and shared resources for taxonomic data. This guide presents the core terms for describing a species checklist followed by a list of extensions that extend the data profile to publish rich annotations to the core taxonomic data record
