👩🏻🍳 Welcome to the checklist recipe
To solve this, we have developed a template GitHub repository for standardizing thematic species checklist data to Darwin Core using R. This checklist recipe contains all the ingredients to make your data standardization open, repeatable, customizable and documented. The core functionality is an R Markdown file that makes use of the widely adopted tidyverse R packages to automatically transform a source data file to a Darwin Core checklist. Any user with a basic knowledge of R can customize the code to their own needs and explain specific data mapping decisions. In combination this makes the standardization process repeatable and transparent.
Our recipe is based on experience we gained by publishing checklist data for the TrIAS project. We hope it helps you standardize and publish your own checklist. Happy cooking!
