2. Mobilising historic data
A work programme focused on mobilising historic survey data is already underway.
This includes development and promotion of online citizen data capture systems to support volunteers in the digitisation of historic datasets.
This Working Group
This working group is being established in part fulfillment of the NBN’s Strategic Aim 1 which is “Record, collect, diversify, enhance and mobilise biological data”. A Network strategic priority is to grow our capacity and capability to record and collect high quality biological data.
This group will focus on developing a UK strategy for mobilising historic survey data and secure resources for historic data digitisation and mobilisation.
