The collaboration between the GBIF Nodes of France, Portugal and Spain finishes covering objectives
These three nodes identified complementary weaknesses and strengths that were developed trought this project and during 2014. These were: e-learning, data visualization, crowdsourcing, persistent identifiers, tools and processes to improve the data quality and publication of data papers. This project is part of the GBIF Mentoring program which aims to enhance capacities and impact of the involved nodes by leveraging on their capacities. Although the activities were conducted continuously throughout the year, three joint full-time sessions were organized.
The methods and materials that were introduced to this project will be useful to other nodes in GBIF. During the Annual Meeting of GBIF in New Delhi (India) in September 2014 a poster about the project was presented and can be downloaded here.
