Country report data sources

GBIF CountryReport detail

In 2015, the GBIF Secretariat began producing annual ‘country reports’, like this one from Denmark (https://www.gbif.org/country/DK/summary), at the request of the Governing Board.

After two years in this format, the Secretariat needs to reevaluate them in order to reduce the labour-intensive requirements for producing the reports. In the meantime, the table below highlights the source and availability of the data, content and graphics used in the reports.
