Introduction to the use of data on the GBIF Data Portal
The graphical user interface for GBIF-mediated data is the Data Portal.
The GBIF Data Portal is proof of the concept that a worldwide distributed network of biodiversity data providers can be linked together and made searchable from a single point of access.
The portal includes a general introduction and online tutorial. If you are a first-time visitor, you may want to let it guide you through a few examples. This tutorial can be accessed from the ’About’ link on any of the portal pages.
The Data Portal allows complex searches on any taxon, country or dataset, or on a combination of these parameters. The existing Portal is a direct response to user needs. Read more: http://www.gbif.org/informatics/infrastructure/integrating/.
If you would like to know what new features have been added recently, please check out the version history, which can be found on the Portal’s entry page.
The GBIF portal offers a range of services to support the use of biodiversity data in other applications and analyses, and additional services and tools are being added as the portal evolves. Read more: http://www.gbif.org/informatics/infrastructure/retrieving/
