Launch of the New GBIF Portal

The new GBIF portal combining data search and access with communication about the network has been launched today (Wednesday 9 October) during the 20th meeting of the GBIF Governing Board in Berlin. It is possible to watch the launch from 11am CET via webcast here. Presentations from Colombia and Japan will also demonstrate how freely-available tools and software developed by the GBIF community are being used to share information about biodiversity through national portals. Later, from 1.30pm CET, the annual GBIF Science Symposium will be webcast from the same site, under the title GBIF at work - advancing biodiveristy science for a sustainable society. You can access the brochure for the symposium here.

Global Biodiversity Informatics Outlook officially launched

The Global Biodiversity Informatics Outlook (GBIO) aims to coordinate global efforts and funding to deliver the best possible information about life on Earth, and our impacts upon it. GBIO offers a framework for reaching a much deeper understanding of the world’s biodiversity, and through that understanding the means to conserve it better and to use it more sustainably. The framework arose from the Global Biodiversity Informatics Conference which gathered around 100 experts in Copenhagen in July, 2012, to identify critical questions relating to biodiversity and tools needed answer them.

Subscription period is now open for the upcoming Online Workshop on Data Recording for Technicians in Natural History Collections that will take place in November 6-20, 2013. This workshop is addressed to technicians specialised in natural history collection specimen data recording, both in zoological and botanical ones. During the workshop, the different approaches to the digitization of this kind of information will be studied.

Historic Brazilian Plant Collection available via GBIF

A major plant collection founded by the Brazilian emperor in the 19th century has become the first dataset from Brazil to be published through GBIF since the country joined the network last year. More than half a million individual records from the Rio de Janeiro Botanic Gardens (JBRJ) Herbarium can now be searched and downloaded via the GBIF data portal. The dataset is focussed on Brazilian and South American flora, and includes specimens collected by some of the most important naturalists of the 19th and 20th centuries.

E-Learning Georeferencing Workshop using GEOLocate

Subscription period is now open for the upcoming Online Workshop on Georeferencing Natural History Specimens using GEOLocate, an electronic georeferencing solution designed to facilitate the task of assigning geographic coordinates to the locality data associated with natural history collections. It has been shown that the process of georeferencing is an activity that substantially increases the value of the stored data and its potential uses (see "Guide to Best Practices for Georeferencing" published by GBIF). In addition, it is necessary to get deep into these georeferencing processes, including those that are made retrospectively. Students will have access to cartography and they will be provided with an introduction to the different options of the GEOLocate platform.

The workshop will take place in October 16-30, 2013. Applications should be submitted via email to info@gbif.es by October 1, 2013.
