The JRS foundation has awarded the Albertine Rift Conservation Society (ARCOS) a grant to build competence for biodiversity information systems in the Albertine Rift region. In the context of that project a first workshop is planned, targeting to cover the following contents: Data integration, planning, design and testing. Data Acquisition and processing, network-based data and network-integrated data, acquisition and processing datasets, GIS and geo-referencing (species, long-term monitoring data, spacial data, documents, etc.).
The event will be organised in collaboration with the GBIF nodes in the region.
