Welcome to the LifeWatch and EMODnet data quality control tool. This tool allows you to assess to what extend a dataset published on an IPT or a DwC-A file meets the EMODnet Biology Data Quality Criteria. Provide the URL to the homepage of the IPT resource in the field IPTLink and press load. This may take a few minutes for large (+100k occurrence records) datasets. Then navigate through the different tabs above to get detailed QC information, or press the download button to resolve the issues later. The tab about specifies which QC checks are caried out, and which QC check are planned to be included. Please use the R functions at https://github.com/EMODnet/LifeWatch-EMODnet-Biology-QC-tool or contact email@example.com if you need a qc report for datasets with more than 500k occurrence records.
