The Draft Data Specifications consultation period will be closed by October 21st 2011

Since June 2011 there is an ongoing open consultation of the draft version of all the data specifications of themes in Annex II and III which will be closed by Oct 21 2011. The most important topics related to biodiversity are: Bio-geographical Regions, Habitats and biotopes and Species distribution. Their work is now available for public view and consultation by the INSPIRE Stakeholder Community as draft Guidelines. Based on all the comments received, the INSPIRE TWGs will issue a new version of the Data Specification.

Though the TWG has been loyal to the INSPIRE Directive definition is has been thoroughly debated since the consequences is that the data specification does not support the dissemination of high resolution primary data, e.g. from the GBIF-network or other sources if they exists. The data model allows though to present the underlying data providers and source databases in each grid cell or other spatial representation. For GBIF as a major contributor from a lot of academic institutions to biodiversity data in Europe (for the time being more than 100 mill records), the consequence is that good quality primary data with high resolution will not be available as primary data as such through the INSPIRE data portal. From national experiences it is clear that spatial species data for users at local scale (municipalities etc.) , they demand and benefit from detailed primary data in their management and decisionmaking. For national and international use cases the data specification is sufficiently detailed.

Comments and suggestions must be submitted to Paloma Abad - Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN) - using the following template. More information...

The Digital Observatory for Protected Areas is developed in collaboration with GBIF 

The Digital Observatory for Protected Areas (DOPA) has been created by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in collaboration with other international organizations including the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). DOPA is conceived as a set of distributed databases combined with open, interoperable web services to provide a large variety of end-users including park managers, decision-makers and researchers with means to assess, monitor and forecast the state and pressure of protected areas at the global scale.
