CarBioCial GDI

Project Geodata Collaboration


The spatial data infrastructure (SDI) of project CarBioCial is a data infrastructure implementing a framework of geographic data, metadata, users and tools that are interactively connected in order to use spatial data in an efficient and flexible way.

In CarBioCial, most of the sub-projects apply spatially explicit analysis. Nearly any of the data we work with has a spatial reference. Mutual benefits will arise by sharing data and, even more important, by sharing knowledge about this data, such as topographic maps, land use or land cover data.

Moreover, this could be a set of pictures, taken in a specific area, a table with results of interviews taken in a region or geodata as results of your analysis. Wouldn't it be fantastic if we could share all these data with other sub-projects?

A spatial data infrastructure does provide the means to do so: Users can exchange files and edit helpful information. The Carbiocial SDI allows a sustainable geodata management to support researchers, stimulate and facilitate collaboration, and disseminate results to others.
