data can be open , while not being linked data can be linked , while not being open data which is both open and linked is increasingly viable the Semantic Web can only function with data which is both open and linked --paul walk's weblog safe from hackers, from obsolescence, from undocumented change, from loss, from the ravages of time
An overview of our various projects and products. Offering Antarctic biodiversity data in various context depending on the users requirements.

ANTABIF - background• Born during the IPY as Census of Antarctic Marine Life as the data, visualization and analysis component• Free and open access to biodiversity data• SCAR-MarBIN and ANTABIF projects QuickTime™ en een• Science, conservation and -decompressor zijn vereist om deze afbeelding weer te geven. management• Networked community developments David B, Danis B, Griffiths HJ
atlas.biodiversity.aq• Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean• Redo of Hedgepeth 1969 Folio• Predictive approach• Static and dynamic versions• Modelization loops are ready
atlas.biodiversity.aq• Dynamic approach to a Biogeographic Atlas• Collaborative project: 90+ specialists involved• interdisciplinary: taxonomy, oceanography, ecology, phylogeography, modelization, data management, GIS, conservationists• Modelization loops are ready (R-scripts with GUI)• Results also valuable for SO-MPA designation

ipt.biodiversity.aq• Integrated Publishing Toolkit• standardize and clean your data• manage primary biodiversity data• manage associated metadata• choose collaborators• generate and submit a Data Paper• push data and metadata to Information Systems
mars.biodiversity.a q• Microbial Antarctic Resource System• The organisms are small… but their environmental impacts are critical to many Antarctic ecosystems• They are the dominant and most diverse form of life in the oceans and in the various microbial habitats on the continent• Access to their diversity is becoming cost- effective and increasing exponentially
mars.biodiversity.a q• Integrate Antarctic microbial DNA sequence data in ANTABIF• Phased approach: Step 0: data description and discovery Step 1: microbial sequence and habitat metadata Step 2: sequence data Step 3: batch sequence data processing Step 4: customized sequence data processing
mars.biodiversity.a q• Potential applications: Is there a biogeography of Antarctic microbes? Document Antarctic bioprospecting activities Assess bioindicating value of microbial diversity as early warning system of ecosystems shifts
Challenges• Data deluge• Huge gaps in the data• Missing data types• Orphan datasets• True integration of complex data
Highlights• new architecture deployed• new data publication tools• flexible design: ready for integration in many contexts• exciting data products being developed• mARS paving the way to complex genomics data processing• so much to do... so little time
