Task groups to help make data more ‘fit for use’ in key research areas
GBIF has assembled a pair of panels of international experts to explore how best to improve the use and application of GBIF-mediated data in agrobiodiversity and distribution modelling.
Each task group will assess coverage and completeness of data—often referred to as ‘fitness for use’— and lends its expertise to recommend approaches that could improve research and applications in these thematic areas. Their work is part of a broader strategy to engage expert communities of interest to understand how biodiversity data are applied in particular use cases. Two researchers of the National Museum of Natural Sciences (CSIC, Spain) --, Jorge M. Lobo and Miguel Bastos Araújo -- are among the experts in these task groups.
