Launch of the new GBIF.ES national data portal: institutions, collections and datasets (9/9)
The GBIF.ES data portal makes available metadata for the Spanish institutions, together with their respective collections and datasets, which publish data through the GBIF network. In these pages you can filter to see only the collections that house a group of organisms (birds, plants, microorganisms), a map is displayed to show the location of these collections and a list of all of them is also provided. This information comes from the questionnaires sent to Spanish GBIF Node and the IPT platform. This way, you can look up the objectives of the institution, the collections it houses, the number of accessible records in GBIF, which species contains, where they have been observed or have been collected, etc. Keeping this information updated and correct is up to the heads of collections and institutions, for this purpose they can make use of the questionnaires mentioned above or contacting the Coordination Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org for specifics.
