The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) was established by governments in 2001 to encourage free and open access to biodiversity data, via the Internet. Through a global network of countries and organizations, GBIF promotes and facilitates the mobilization, access, discovery and use of information about the occurrence of organisms over time and across the planet
Free and open access to biodiversity data can be provided: like the digital text or multimedia data records that detail the instance of an organism – the ‘what, where, when, how and by whom’ of the organism’s occurrence and recording.
At the GBIF Secretariat, the DIGIT work area is coordinated by Dr Vishwas Chavan, Senior Programme Officer for DIGIT.
