---++Darwin Core Versions
The following versions of the Darwin Core are of historical significance:
* [[http://digir.net/schema/conceptual/darwin/2003/1.0/darwin2.xsd][DwC 1.2 schema]] -- first deployed version (used in [[http://www.gbif.org][GBIF]], also known as DarwinCoreV2)
* [[http://digir.net/schema/conceptual/darwin/manis/1.21/darwin2.xsd][DwC 1.21 schema]] -- revised version (used in [[http://www.gbif.org][GBIF]], [[http://manisnet.org][MaNIS]], [[http://herpnet.org][HerpNet]], [[http://ornisnet.org][OrNIS]], and [[http://www.fishnet2.net/index.html][FishNet2]])
* [[http://digir.sourceforge.net/schema/conceptual/darwin/core/2.0/darwincoreWithDiGIRv1.3.xsd][DwC 1.3 schema]] -- draft standard of the Darwin Core accepted at TDWG Meeting 2004, Christchurch, New Zealand. (unused)
* [[http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/tdwg_dw_core.xsd][DwC 1.4 schema]] -- draft standard under discussion (not for use)(but used in [[http://www.gbif.org][GBIF]], and recommended to use in GBIF see: [[http://www.gbif.org/DataProviders/HowTo][http://www.gbif.org/DataProviders/HowTo]])
* [[http://iobis.org/obis/obis.xsd][OBIS]] -- based on !DwC 1.2 used in [[http://www.gbif.org][GBIF]], [[http://www.iobis.org/technical.shtml][Ocean Biogeographic Information System]])
* [[http://data.paleoportal.org/schema/conceptual/1.0/paleoportal.xsd][PaleoPortal]] -- based on !DwC 1.2 (used in [[http://data.paleoportal.org/portal/][The Paleontology Portal]])
The normative form of any Darwin Core version is its XML schema document (*.xsd).

%ICON{bubble}% *Why Darwin Core 2?*
Posted by: mole Date: 17 December 2004, 12:17
Shouldn't this be Darwin Core 3? There is already a Darwin Core V2 in use http://digir.net/schema/conceptual/darwin/2003/1.0/darwin2.xsd (from which the OBIS schema is extended http://iobis.org//obis/obis.xsd ).
----
Comment above references an earlier version of this page where !DwC 1.3 was referred to as Darwin Core 2, a nomenclatural issue that has since been fixed by adoption of the 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 naming convention.
