Managing permit data
The GGBN has developed a permit vocabulary as an extension of the Darwin Core and ABCD. This can be seen here. The GGBN Permit Vocabulary is meant to be used with a 1:many relation for 1 specimen, tissue, or DNA record. This is to allow more than one permit type for each record, e.g. collecting permit, export permit, import permit. Within a Darwin Core-Archive implementation it can be used with both the Occurrence Core and the new defined Material Sample Core. Within ABCD please use the ABCDGGBN implementation.
