BIO-DATAthon: A unique validation event of biodiversity data!

Domingo, Enero 15, 2023

Do you enjoy identifying species names? The BIO-DATAthon is made for you!

The activity aims to validate species names of the biodiversity observations coming from several citizen science platforms, such as Pl@ntNet or Artportalen; you can validate terrestrial or marine images, depending on your expertise!
Citizen observatories, such as Artportalen or Pl@ntNet, are platforms where volunteers update and identify all kinds of biodiversity images. Some of these observations are now available in Cos4Bio, a new online platform that integrates observations on biodiversity from various citizen science platforms. The aim of this platform is that you, as an expert (by learning or experience), get access to an enormous number of species observations, download all the data you are interested in and, when possible, contribute to validating species identifications in the same place to improve biodiversity data quality. Currently, some of the observations gathered in Cos4Bio have already been identified. Still, there is a need to double-check the species names to improve data quality and be able to use these data in scientific papers, national biodiversity data libraries, etc. Cos4Bio is a service developed by Bineo Consulting in the Cos4Cloud framework, a project of which CREAF is partner. 

When? This online event will take place from the 7th of December until the 15th of January; you can do it from home when it fits you better; no pressure!

Who is this event for? It is aimed at experts (by learning or by experience) who can identify species names (any taxon!). For example, you can be specialised in some species of frogs, Mediterranean birds, plants, molluscs, sponges or fishes and only validate these taxons.
