Basic Site/Feature Information Recording Guidelines
In order for your data to be accepted by the Stoa Consortium and registered correctly we ask that you submit some basic supplementary information along with your data.
Project Level Information will help us and others accurately identify your project in the registry. This information should be submitted as a separate ASCII file.
Record Level Information will ensure that each piece of data you submit is associated with your project and has a unique identity in the registry. Record level information should be submitted in a tab delimited ASCII file.
These submission guidelines have been derived from the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. The Dublic Core Metadata Initiative provides an internationally recognized common core of semantics for resource description. For more information about the Dublin Core Initiative, please visit the Dublic Core Initiative web site.
