The "mapping of the ignorance" wins the challenge Ebbe Nielsen 2016

Alejandro Ruete, researcher of Swedish University of Agriculture Sciences in Uppsala, has won the Ebbe Nielsen award for his approach to measuring and comparing the spatial and temporal gaps in biodiversity data.

As part of his submission, Ruete developed two web applications that demonstrate the use of the algorithms. One app, SLWapp, compares the ignorance calculated for seven species groups in Sweden, and the other, GBIFapp, explores ignorance in space and time for amphibians in Europe. Congratulations Alejandro!.
