Darwin Core Archive Assitant Add-on is an add-on for Google Sheet it assists the creation of Darwin Core Archives (DwCA) and publising to Zenodo.
Most biologists and biodiversity data managers organize their data into spreadsheets and for those whom are not familiar with Information Science practices of data standardization, the usage of complex software to assist the creation of standardized datasets can be painful, or even prohibited.
Based on that, the Google Sheet Add-on available here searches to explore the familiarity of the users with spreadsheets and allow them to create and publish standardized biodiversity data using Darwin Core Standard.
The add-on aims to provided a simple and intuitive interface for users not familiar with the concepts of Darwin Core Standard (DwC) and data sharing using Darwin Core Archives.
The data in a spreadsheet can be easily mapped to DwC terms and the add-on can handle one-to-many relations between data records by the use of `CORE_ID` special term.
