1. Objectives and background
Global Biodiversity Information Facility
Challenges in data sharing
Eventually, all data sets become orphans: Archiving services are a necessity.
The concept ”share once, use many” requires available data repositories.
Data from archives must be available using standard mechanisms to portals such as GBIF.
IPR, confidentiality, and benefit sharing must be respected at all times.
Global Biodiversity Information Facility
Goals of the GBIF Data Repository Tool
Enable data custodians to manage their data and control its publishing.
Provide mechanism such that spreadsheets, etc., can directly be used for sharing data
Hide the database complexities from users
Make available a simple data warehouse tool for those who want to host datasets for the community
I.e., lower the threshold of data sharing as low as possible.
Global Biodiversity Information Facility
Functionalities
Data must be formatted according to the Darwin Core standard and its extensions in flat spreadsheet format.
In fact, any flat format will work (rows, columns)
The system will check and parse the data into embedded MySQL database that becomes available to the public as a DiGIR/TAPIR resource.
Owners can control the level of detail released:
Fuzzying of geographic coordinates is available
Collector names and time periods can be hidden
Approval of terms and conditions for data use can be required
Owner can revoke release and update data.
Metadata can be inherited to data to replace missing values as defined.
Includes an embedded image server
Global Biodiversity Information Facility
Supports the DiGIR and TAPIR protocols of TDWG
Turn-key installation

Steps for data owners
Prepare the data files
Create a nested folder structure on the Repository for the collection
Enter default metadata scope (to cover missing values in data, etc.)
Decide on access policies
Create a collection and assign it to a data custodian...

Prepare the data file(s)
No direct download and fuzzying for web service access

Data is now searchable locally and through the DiGIR/TAPIR protocols
