  • Add a NODES component to this SLIDE as GBIF historical focus has collections as a core
  • DIGIT has moved from its NHC focus (specimen, observation, multimedia, impact assessments, domain specific task groups). Data Resources Discovery – GBRDS is planned as registry of biodiversity resources, GBRDS Stakeholders workshop, GBRDS as tool for investment in BI. GSAP-NHC has recommended that metadata creation is way forward to expedite NHC digitisation. Innovative approaches are being adopted by the network Participants as fall out of targets set by 2009-2010 WP. Data Mobilisation Strategy Discussions – assess realities, challenges, and potentials of the Participants Data Publishing Framework Task Group: Data Publishing on par with Scholarly publishing: (a) recommendation on data discovery and publishing, (b) data publishing together with scholarly publishing, (c) Data Paper, (d) Data Usage Index, (e) Data Citation Mechanism

  • 2011 WP activities of DIGIT area will focus on strengthening network capacities in two areas – Demand driven data discovery & action plans by Participants: Best practice guidelines for strategy & action plan development Comprehensive GAP analysis of GBIF mobilised data Uptake of BIP Index by the Participants in furthering progress in ‘biodiversity informatics’ Strategies for ‘internationalisation’ of data discovery & publishing Implementation of ‘Data Publishing Framework’: Data citation mechanism & service Data Usage Index Data Papers for recognising efforts of authoring enriched metadata documents Simultaneous publishing of ‘peer reviewed paper’ and ‘data’ Institutionalisation of hosting centre infrastructure

  • GLOBAL BIODIVERSITY INFORMATION FACILITY Vishwas Chavan & Samy Gaiji [email_address] WWW.GBIF.ORG GBIF: An introduction, key points and highlights Building the Biodiversity Informatics Commons ICES WGDIM Meeting 25-27 May 2010 Copenhagen, Denmark
  • GBIF: an intergovernmental initiative to share biodiversity information Currently 5 4 countries; 4 4 International Organisations…
  • Growth in GBIF Participation NB: Drop in Associate Participants in 2007 is attributable to delays in signing the new MOU 2007-2011 Last updated: 2010-02-12 39 51 63 72 78 81 79 88 97 98
  • GBIF’s Mandate ” To facilitate free and open access to biodiversity data worldwide, via the Internet, to underpin scientific research, conservation and sustainable development.” GBIF is govt-initiated, and govt. funded, in response to government agency needs in biodiversity information access and management; GBIF is in service to science, as a global ‘public good’
  • Data shared online via GBIF (> 200 m biodiversity records mapped to a 1 X 1 degree grid) Data Publishers: 312 Data Resources: 9900
  • GBIF facilitates access/exchange of data

  • Best Practice Guidelines All freely available
  • Primary biodiversity data and information effectively available Data and information that have been produced but are not easy to find, access, and use (i.e not effectively available!) - a gigantic task of mobilising billions of data is still needed, as well as integrating new data.
