  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. 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’
  7. 7. Data shared online via GBIF (> 200 m biodiversity records mapped to a 1 X 1 degree grid) Data Publishers: 312 Data Resources: 9900
  8. 8. GBIF facilitates access/exchange of data <ul><li>GBIF-mediated data on the ‘India’ </li></ul>

  15. 15. Key Components: the IPT IPT The Integrated Publishing Toolkit is a state-of-the-art tool to simplify the mobilization of biodiversity information resources such as Names, Metadata and primary biodiversity data Data Publisher Registration (GBRDS) + Publishing of Names, Metadata, Primary biodiversity data etc…
  16. 16. Simple process! The Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT) is designed to simplify the mapping, indexing and harvesting of Names, Metadata and Primary Biodiversity Data!
  17. 17. In summary…GBIF’s Informatics Improved access to Names, Metadata and Primary Biodiversity Data Distributed GBIF informatics architecture Faster and easier publishing of data
  18. 18. 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.
