Global Diversity Information Facility (GBIF)

Global Biodiversity Information Facility

The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is an international organisation that is working to make the world's biodiversity data accessible everywhere in the world. GBIF and its many partners work to mobilise the data, and to improve search mechanisms, data and metadata standards, web services, and the other components of an Internet-based information infrastructure for biodiversity.

For more information, see the GBIF topic in the Dataversity Public Discussion group.

NZOR have produced a document outlining its relationships to other organisations, both within New Zealand and globally, including GBIF. The document also details the global network of GBIF participants.
