We are a non-profit association, whose objective is to bring citizens closer to biodiversity through the use of citizen science as a source of information for the dissemination of knowledge and the conservation of nature. We have a project called Biodiversidad Virtual, a virtual platform that incorporates biodiversity data through georeferenced and dated photography. In this case, this resource manages our data about invertebrates.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 119,024 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
