CEPDEC-SEP Second Training Workshop - Uses of Biodiversity Data

The SEP-CEPDEC project includes two main training events: a first course about biodiversity data digitisation and publication (already held in four different locations) and a second course on the retrieval and use of such data.
This second event is focused on giving the participants an overview of the different ways to access GBIF-mediated data (highlighting the role of the GBIF Data Portal), and the different possible uses of such data. As an example of biodiversity data analysis, an introduction to ecological niche modelling techniques will be part of the course.


Maximum of 30 people. GBIF Node Managers and others in charge of organising Biodiversity Information Networks in their countries, in the framework of the GBIF CEPDEC-SEP project. Scientists or technicians with a significant background and experience in biological and biodiversity sciences, and in the use and management of digital biodiversity data and GIS tools (such as ESRI software, DIVA-GIS, GV-SIG, etc).
Participants have to be nominated by a CEPDEC-SEP participant country.
