The SpeciesGeoCoder software allows to plot species occurrences into polygons and more complex user-defined units (e.g. to know if the species are present in certain areas or study migration patterns). It can be used through the command-line, or through a simple graphical user interface. Basic documentation is provided through the project wiki.
The software accepts occurrence data in the format provided by GBIF.org.

This article describes the characteristics of Vesper, a piece of software that can analyze the contents of a Darwin Core archive using several quality-related criteria.
Vesper is a web based software application that can analyze the contents of a Darwin Core archive using several quality-related criteria. It provides results through graphics and maps that help the user to better understand the contents of the archive and where the potential issues may be.
This best practice guide aims to support managers and team members working in biodiversity projects with a camera trapping component. It gives recommendations on how to plan and execute the data capture and publishing components of those projects, making sure that they are compatible with existing international standards, such a those adopted by GBIF.
