Data and Metadata Working Group: Members


The CSA Data & Metadata WG is a central node in a consortium of individuals and organizations working on issues related to citizen science data, metadata, and interoperability.

The CSA Data & Metadata WG is led by two co-chairs. Governance over key goals and objectives is shared with liaisons to sister Citizen Science Associations and Standards Development Organizations (SDOs). The work of the CSA Data & Metadata WG is supported and implemented by Members at Large.
