The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is an inter-governmental organization funded by different countries and aimed to provide free and open online access to global biodiversity data supporting scientific research, conservation, and sustainable development. GBIF is a network of participant countries and organizations coordinated by its Secretariat in Copenhagen. Working through participant nodes, it provides data-holding institutions around the world with common standards and open-source tools that enable them to share information about where and when species have been recorded. GBIF.ES is the Spanish Node of GBIF. GBIF.ES is organized as a distributed infrastructure composed by entities from all Spanish regions (research institutes, universities, environmental governments, citizen science initiatives, etc.) together with the Coordination Unit located at the Royal Botanic Garden-CSIC. Spain currently shares through the GBIF network over 32 million records of biodiversity from nearly a hunderd of institutions and over three hunders of datasets.
