The section on GBIF.org about capacity enhancement includes information about the multiple activities that the GBIF network carries out around capacity, especially those with an international component. It also includes information about former GBIF programmes such as the Mentoring Programme or the Regional Training Support Programme.
GBIF global website GBIF.org hosts a set of pages for each of GBIF’s Participants. In these pages, you can find detailed information about the biodiversity data published from and about the Participant, contact information for its official representatives, and lists of new items and scientific journal articles where the Participant was involved.
These pages are a mechanism to highlight the work carried out by the countries and international organizations that conform GBIF, and showcase the benefits of participating in GBIF.
The BioVeL portal allows the analysis of data using scientific workflows. It includes specific workflows focused on data quality assessment and refinement and also on ecological niche modelling.
IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the global authority on the extinction risk faced by the world's species, now includes occurrence records served through GBIF in its mapping tool, to complement its expert range maps. Click on 'observations' on the map for any species to see the evidence of its occurrence available through GBIF.
Map of Life is an online resource for mapping, monitoring and analysing biodiversity worldwide. It brings together all types of information about species distributions, providing model-based integration and providing a system for users to build upon existing knowledge. All species occurrence records served through GBIF are among the various data layers included in this project.
iMarine, an initiative co-funded by the European Commission in collaboration with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), supports the ecosystem approach to fisheries management and the conservation of living marine resources. It uses the D4Science e-infrastructure to share data, software and computing capacity, with GBIF an important source of biodiversity data.
This video shows how to use the GenGIS function to automatically query and download biodiversity occurrence data using the GBIF network.
A geographical information system (GIS) specialized in working with genetic and population data. It can automatically retrieve occurrence data from the GBIF network using the GBIF API.
The European Alien Species Information Network (EASIN) aims to improve access to data and information on alien species in Europe. It uses GBIF as one of four initial data sources for its map services. The network will support new European Union regulation on invasive alien species.
The Barcode of Life Data Systems (BOLD), the platform for DNA-based identification of species, has introduced a 'taxonomy browser' displaying a map of GBIF-served occurrences alongside the distribution of 'barcoded' specimens for more than 170,000 species. This helps to detect outliers and possible extensions to the range of known species.
LifeWatch has built a compilation of public data services (made available by OBIS, ITIS, WoRMS, WWF and many others) that can be used to perform checks on biodiversity datasets. A complete list of the services is available in http://lifewatch.be/data-services#WebServices (a large amount of them are oriented to the marine environment).
GEO-BON has released this package of environmental layers that can be downloaded for free and used in combination with data such as those available via GBIF to perform ecological niche analysis.
This article summarizes some thoughts on ways and criteria to prioritize the digitization of specimens from natural history collections.
Members of the GBIF Science Committee and Secretariat present in this article an analysis of the recommendations of one of the GBIF task groups: ‘Global Strategy and Action Plan for Mobilisation of Natural History Collections Data’.
This article includes the recommendations of one of the GBIF task groups: the one on the ‘Global Strategy and Action Plan for the Mobilization of Natural History Collection Data’.
This article describes how to use the ModestR software to access data from online repositories such as GBIF, and how to perform data cleaning operations on them.
This tutorial explains how to use the ModestR software to download occurrence data published via the GBIF Network and build species distribution maps and other products with them.
ModestR is a set of applications that allow data analysis and display to build complex products, such as species distribution maps. It allows to download data available through the GBIF data to be integrated into the analysis.
This article includes the final recommendations of the GBIF ‘Multimedia Resources’ task group.
This article describes the results of a specific analysis on the information about dates included in the biodiversity data that is published via the GBIF network.
