Darwin Test is a MS Access based program, designed to validate and test the Darwin Core records (Darwin Core versión 1.2, Darwin Core 1.4 and Darwin Core Archive), a standard used by GBIF to facilitate the sharing of information about biological diversity (occurrences, conserved specimens in natural history collections, samples and all related information).

Before publishing your biodiversity data in a public network such as GBIF it is highly recommended to test your data using Darwin Test in order to detect possible problems.

Darwin Test is available in Spanish and English.
