Extended Measurement Or Facts

http://rs.iobis.org/obis/terms/ExtendedMeasurementOrFact

Support for generic measurements or facts, extended version linking to occurrences. This extension (eMoF) was developed to be used in combination with the Event Core, but is also compatible with other cores. When used with Event Core it allows to create an additional link between the eMoF and the occurrence extension. The eMoF can store measurements or facts related to a biological occurrence, environmental measurements or facts and sampling method attributes. This extension also provides the option to provide identifiers to reference a vocabulary for the measurementType, measurementValue and measurementUnit fields.

Properties



measurementID
An identifier for the MeasurementOrFact (information pertaining to measurements, facts, characteristics, or assertions). May be a global unique identifier or an identifier specific to the data set.
See also http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/index.htm#measurementID
Examples:
Qualified Namehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/measurementID
Namespacehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
occurrenceID
The identifier of the occurrence the measurement or fact refers to. If not applicable, it should be left empty.
See also http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/index.htm#occurrenceID
Examples:
Qualified Namehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/occurrenceID
Namespacehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementType
The nature of the measurement, fact, characteristic, or assertion. Recommended best practice is to use a controlled vocabulary.
See also http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/index.htm#measurementType
Examples: "tail length", "temperature", "trap line length", "survey area", "trap type", "Dry weight biomass", "Sampling instrument name"
Qualified Namehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/measurementType
Namespacehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementTypeID
An identifier for the measurementType (global unique identifier, URI). The identifier should reference the measurementType in a vocabulary.
Examples: "http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/P01/current/ODRYBM01/"
Qualified Namehttp://rs.iobis.org/obis/terms/measurementTypeID
Namespacehttp://rs.iobis.org/obis/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementValue
The value of the measurement, fact, characteristic, or assertion.
See also http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/index.htm#measurementValue
Examples: "45", "20", "1", "14.5", "UV-light", "Van Veen grab"
Qualified Namehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/measurementValue
Namespacehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementValueID
An identifier for facts stored in the column measurementValue (global unique identifier, URI). This identifier can reference a controlled vocabulary (e.g. for sampling instrument names, methodologies, life stages) or reference a methodology paper with a DOI. When the measurementValue refers to a value and not to a fact, the measurementvalueID has no meaning and should remain empty.
Examples: "http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/L22/current/TOOL0653/", "http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/B07/current/NDT023/", "http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/S11/current/S1116/"
Qualified Namehttp://rs.iobis.org/obis/terms/measurementValueID
Namespacehttp://rs.iobis.org/obis/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementAccuracy
The description of the potential error associated with the measurementValue.
See also http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/index.htm#measurementAccuracy
Examples: "0.01", "normal distribution with variation of 2 m"
Qualified Namehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/measurementAccuracy
Namespacehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementUnit
The units associated with the measurementValue. Recommended best practice is to use the International System of Units (SI).
See also http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/index.htm#measurementUnit

Qualified Namehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/measurementUnit
Namespacehttp://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementUnitID
An identifier for the measurementUnit (global unique identifier, URI). The identifier should reference the measurementUnit in a vocabulary.
Examples: "http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/P06/current/UMSQ/", “http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/P06/current/UCPL/”, “http://vocab.nerc.ac.uk/collection/P06/current/CMCM/”
Qualified Namehttp://rs.iobis.org/obis/terms/measurementUnitID
Namespacehttp://rs.iobis.org/obis/terms/
Data Type string
Requiredfalse
measurementDeterminedDate
The date on which the MeasurementOrFact was made. Recommended best practice is to use an encoding scheme, such as ISO 8601:2004(E).
