Improving the metadata on Bioversity Dataverse #8

As requested via mail:

Looking at the Metadata tool output we feel that there are 2 priority areas namely adding AGROVOC term-id's to the keywords and adding the geographical coverage to the metadata records.


Would it be possible to extract all unique keywords from the Bioversity Dataverse, check these terms against AGROVOC and, if an exact match is found in AGROVOC, add the corresponding AGROVOC term-id to the relevant Dataverse entries?

Coverage (geographical)

Would it be possible to use the existing metadata e.g. the dataset title and description field, to (semi-)automaticly extract e.g. the country names and insert these in the geographical coverage field?

NB any changes made by these scripts would still be checked and approved by a human before the modified records are posted/published!
