Key features of the Darwin Core transformation:
Deployments (of camera traps) are parent events, with observations (machine observations) as child events. No information about the parent event is provided other than its ID, meaning that data can be expressed in an Occurrence Core with one row per observation and
parentEventIDshared by all occurrences in a deployment.
Sequence-based observations share an

The image(s) an observation is based on are provided in the Audubon Media Description extension, with a foreign key to the observation.
Excluded are records that document blank or unclassified media, vehicles and observations of humans.
