Launch of the new GBIF.ES national data portal: hubs for centres and projects

The new GBIF.ES national data portal provides the possibility to create specific data pages for centers and projects (so-called hubs) within their own websites, where data can be searched, a map is displayed with their georeferenced records, statistics about the information shared within GBIF are shown, etc. We do not have an example of any Spanish institution that has already implemented this functionality, but we expect to show it at the next workshop in February the 4th and/or select centers/projects interested in integrating this option. In the Australian context you can check the AVH (Australian Virtual Herbarium) example:

Launch of the new GBIF.ES national data portal: georeferenced and no georeferenced data (7/9)

We should keep in mind that GBIF not only shares data with coordinates. A large number of records that are not georeferenced are also available for download via the data portal. For example: if a user search what information is available on Lactarius deliciosus, the portal displays on the map 94 records with coordinates in the Iberian Peninsula. However, the total number of records that match the user's search is 330 which can be all downloaded. Watch the following video.

E-Learning Workshop on Biodiversity Databases and GenBank

Subscription period is now open for the upcoming Online Workshop on Biodiversity Databases and GenBank that will take place in March 11-25, 2015. The importance of collection specimens as a pillar of the scientific methodogy in biodiversity studies is becoming increasingly recognized and accepted. This is an opportunity for natural history collections if -when publishing their data- they include links to GenBank, and make GenBank repositories link their sequences to the corresponding voucher specimens in the collection databases. This workshop focuses on how to make these linkages in a practical way. Subscription forms must be submitted to before February the 16th, 2015.
