The Finnish Biodiversity Information Facility (FinBIF)

The Finnish Biodiversity Information Facility (FinBIF) collects biodiversity data from Finland to an integrated e-infrastructure. It combines three kinds of biodiversity data, specimens, observations and DNA, and links them with modern analysis tools.

The core information such as taxonomy and location data will be unified, which allows for combining data from different data sources. An easy-to-use portal will be built for data sharing. A new observation and monitoring system as well as a management system for scientific collections are also under development. One of the main aims of the project is to promote and apply the concept of open data.
