deprecated XDF - A Language for the Definition and Exchange of Biological Data Sets

Abbreviation: XDF


General Information
This record was deprecated on May 26, 2016 for the following reason(s): This standard is listed as 'prior' on the TDWG website (http://www.tdwg.org/standards/)

XDF is a high-level language for describing biological data, with its own syntax and command vocabulary, analogous to the high-level programming languages used to describe software algorithms. Provision is made within XDF for predefined standard definitions of the common core elements of biological data sets such as the taxonomic hierarchy, biological nomenclature, descriptive material and bibliography.
