International ALA Workshop 2016


The 3-day International ALA Workshop was held in Madrid (Spain) between the 3rd and 5th of October 2016. This workshop brought together software developers from GBIF Nodes of Australia, France, Germany, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden as well as the member organization Canadensys to enhance the development of national data portals based on the Atlas of Living Australia. The Australian, French and Spanish Nodes assisted the other Nodes based on their previous experience. The host for this course was GBIF Spain (GBIF.ES).

Following this 3-day workshop, a 2-day workshop was proposed for members of the CoopBioPlat project. The main goal was to review the state of each national data portal based on ALA and move forward on the developments of Species and Geospatial modules.
