A GBIF tool to enable the publishing of biodiversity datasets

  • v2.3.3

    (Latest version)

Latest release – version 2.3.3, December 2016

Version history

This version is intended to make the IPT even more robust and secure. The user interface has also been translated into Russian, extending its global reach even further.

Additionally, please note that GBIF recently released a new set of Microsoft Excel templates for uploading data to the IPT. The new templates provide a simpler solution for capturing, formatting and uploading three types of GBIF data classes: sampling-event data, occurrence data, and checklist data. More information about these templates can be found in this news article.
