The learning content of the GBIF-Spain Online Georeferencing Workshop now available

It is now available for downloading the learning content of the Online Workshop about Georeferencing Using GEOLocate organized by GBIF Spain in October 2013. The AContent repository hosts presentations, videos, practical exercises, etc. grouped in a package that can be downloaded as a IMS Common Cartridge or as a SCORM module from http://elearning.gbif.es/AContent/home/index.php These content packages are ZIP files that can be extracted into an empty folder on a computer and be viewed offline through a web browser. Only videos need an Internet connection to be watched.

This workshop aimed to provide basic knowledge on how to assign geographical coordinates using the locality description included with specimens as a starting point. The students will acquire basic knowledge about cartography and about the different options that GEOLocate offers. The workshop was led by David Draper -Universidad Tecnica Particular de Loja (Ecuador)- in collaboration with Nelson Rios from Tulane University Biodiversity Research Institute (USA).

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.

Important: the url to access data is http://www.gbif.org/
