The ABDS is an online tool to house, collect, display and search for Arctic biodiversity related data, maps and graphics for decision making.
This project facilitates access, integration, analysis and display of biodiversity information for scientists, practitioners, managers, policy makers. It will ensure that biodiversity data generated by the Arctic Council are organized to guarantee a legacy and be available to inform global and regional assessments. A new initiative, the Arctic Biodiversity Dashboard, will focus on improving access to biodiversity information through the development of an interactive component to the ABDS that will harness and visualizes datasets to streamline regional target tracking and reporting, e.g., regarding global biodiversity targets.
The project involves data rescue, development, standardization, integration, and display of biodiversity information. Expected deliverables include continued development of the ABDS, addition of data and support to CAFF activities.
