This site provides mapping tools for a range of community-supported Vocabularies and Darwin Core Extensions. Vocabularies act as standardized multilingual thesauri which can be accessed and edited through a user interface as well as through XML (RESTful) web services and text (TSV & CSV) files from this site. Based on internationally recognized standards (e.g. ISO and TDWG) these vocabularies form a core component of all biodiversity data and are intended to facilitate the integration and harmonization of distributed datasets such as museum and GBIF collection records, data for the EOL and databases like the EDIT Scratchpads.

Welcome
