- Provide bulk data access services to assist external software projects requiring biodiversity occurrence data.
- Provide a web services for the persistence of annotations against occurrence records.
- Produce data quality processes to improve the quality of the occurrence data
Primarily, these services will be targeted at meeting the needs of the AP03 project Edgar, but once developed, they will aid the development of other biodiversity portals and analytical tools.
The annotations provided by Edgar, will also persist with the occurrence data. This will aid other researchers in the removal of records not suitable for distribution modelling.
