 New version DARWIN TEST 3.2

It is now available the new version DARWIN TEST 3.2. Darwin Test is a software application to validate and check records from datasets in a Darwin Core 1.2 Darwin Core 1.4 format. Among other functionalities, Darwin Test enables coordinate conversions from UTM to decimal degrees and generalize decimal coordinates.

This new version improves the option to work with files Darwin Core Archive, the new standard for publishing biodiversity data on the Internet using the GBIF network. Furthermore, it includes the possibility to import metadata from files eml.xml (in its variant GML, GBIF metadata profile); improving the calculation of the ICA (Apparent Quality Index), and improved graphical interface which is very easy and user-friendly. It is now also possible to convert between Darwin Core table 1.2, 1.4 and Darwin Core files "Darwin Core Archive" in all possible ways.

Spain at the head of Europe in biodiversity data use

With almost 60,000 visits per year, Spain is ahead of countries such as Germany, United Kingdom or France in the use of biodiversity data -just behind United States of America and Mexico. These results are shown in a recent statistics report about the usage of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). The report can be checked out here. GBIF, which consists of a consortium of international organizations and countries, is the biggest biodiversity database network worldwide. Spain is a founder member of GBIF.

GBIF is a scientific infrastructure aimed at researchers and professionals. The high use rate that has being done in our country is a clear indicator of the power of the research on biodiversity in Spain and the importance of its management. This also means that there is a high implementation of this innovative scientific infrastructure. GBIF is a distributed infrastructure composed by national nodes. In Spain, the national node (http://www.gbif.es) is sponsored by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and managed by the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Currently, GBIF provides access to more than 350 million of species distribution records. In Spain, there are 62 institutions providing more than 8 million records in total.

Plant names in Spain with LSIDs for biodiversity information systems and data sharing

We are making available plant names of genera found in Spain. These have been extracted from The International Plant Names Index (IPNI) by selecting names of those plant genera covered by the Anthos project. This catalogue contains more than a half a million plant names, all of them with permanent identifiers (LSIDs). The information is provided as MS-Access databases in two formats: NOMEN Format compatible with  Herbar, Zoorbar, HZL and Bibmaster; and Species2000 Format compatible with Darwin Test.
