The TDWG Citizen Science Interest Group was chartered at the beginning of 2017. This workshop represents the first time the group can meet together and discuss community development and standards needs. Topics will include policies and standards for common name, symbols for non literate observers and data quality. An important aspect of the meeting will be to establish links to other TDWG working groups and to learn about efforts by groups outside the TDWG organization such as the Citizen Science Association Meta Data working group, the European Citizen Science Association, CoData, RDA Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems, and the Camera Trap Federated Minimum Data Standard about their efforts to draft standards. The PPSR_CORE meta standard has been defined. We will review this standard and its implementation.
