Representatives of Colectica will visit Edinburgh, Scotland to participate in the renovation of the Data Documentation Initiative’s metadata standard.
“There is a wealth of knowledge created during the data collection process,” stated Dan Smith, adding that “Colectica’s goal is to capture more of this information in a standardized way.” Colectica sees the meeting as an important occasion to address the serious lack of routing and correspondent path information in the current version of the DDI standard.
Jeremy Iverson and Dan Smith, both Senior Technical Staff Members at Colectica, will be in the delegation. Representatives from various universities and national statistics organizations will also attend the meeting. Colectica appreciates the strong interest that members of the delegation and others have shown in participating.
