Collaboration

EntSoc 2018 Data Help Desk

Entomological collections and Ecological data repositories and data specialists will collaborate at the EntSoc 2018 meeting in Vancouver to add a Data Help Desk to the Poster/Exhibition Hall. The Entomological Collections Network (ECN), iDigBio, and the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) do this to offer their combined expertise and learn about data needs from those attending this conference. Details on the wiki.

iDigBio Collaborations Enabling Research

To facilitate the study of biodiversity, a number of software products are being collaboratively developed with researchers and projects.  These websites, tools, and workflows take advantage of the data being digitized at US and global institutions and made available by iDigBio through our data  services. Many other tools and services can be found through the Biodiversity Catalogue.

iDigBio Responds to Call for International Collaboration

The expansive scope of iDigBio’s activities places it in the forefront of national and international digitization and data aggregation efforts. Recognizing the importance of its numerous international partners and encouraged by the NSF to expand international collaborations, iDigBio accepted an invitation to join a digitization symposium featured at the 12th Pacific Science Inter-Congress held at the University of the South Pacific in Suva, Fiji, and to follow the symposium with a digitization workshop for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), in Canberra, Australia.

Map of Life Collaboration Meeting

On Monday, February 25th, iDigBio PI's and project staff met with Walter Jetz,Ph.D. from the Map of Life project. Dr. Jetz shared with us how the The Map of Life assembles and integrates different sources of data describing species distributions worldwide. These data include expert species range maps, species occurrence points, ecoregions, and protected areas from providers like IUCN, WWF, GBIF, and more.
