New portal of GBIF: participant pages (1/6)
The new GBIF portal was launched in October 2013 during the 20th meeting of the GBIF Governing Board in Berlin. Here we start a set of six news pieces highlighting the new functionalities of the portal.
Participant pages significantly improve and show more information through this new portal. It is possible to go to each participant page and learn about the activities of the country/organization. Taking the example of Spain (http://www.gbif.org/country/ES), the portal shows on a different map data about Spain and data from Spanish publishers. Also, it gives information about the people involved in the Spanish Node, datasets that have been recently published, news related to the country and what publications have been published by authors based in Spain in the GBIF context.
Next time we will concern about the way of searching data through the GBIF portal and the new maps available.
