NLBIF launches the "Integrated Publishing Toolkit"

11 / 06 / 2012, NLBIF

The ultimate tool for placing biodiversity data online. 

Following several months of experimenting and testing, NLBIF launches the "Integrated Publishing Toolkit" (IPT), a tool developed by the GBIF community, suitable for publishing data files with collection, research or observation data, and meta-data and species lists. This tool allows biodiversity data to be made publicly accessible quickly and easily in accordance with the internationally used Darwin Core standard. Data can be accessed directly via the IPT or through the data portal of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). Dutch owners of biodiversity data can place their data online through the NLBIF IPT, or consider installing an IPT for themselves, naturally with support from NLBIF. More info is available on the GBIF IPT pages, take a look at the NLBIF IPT here, please contact the NLBIF coordinator for detailed information.
