1 BioGIS: A Web-Based Environment for Analyzing, Modelling and Visualizing Biodiversity Data Ronen Kadmon The Hebrew University of Jerusalem

2 Expectations from an ‘Ideal’ Biodiversity Information System Integration of data on different systematic groups Integration of heterogeneous databases Integration of data on different kinds of objects (species, specimens, geographical localities…) Efficient tools for data analysis, modelling and visualization Accessibility through the Internet User-friendly interface

3 The Diversity of Biodiversity Data (Examples from the VI ICSEB conference on “Biodiversity in the information age”) Ecosystems Conservation Morphometrics Biogeography Collections Life history strategies Genes Genetics Global change Butterflies Morphology PhylogenyEcology Taxonomy Species

4 Objects of Biodiversity Data Taxonomic objects (species, genera..) ‘Unit-level’ objects (specimens, observations) Geographical objects (sites, regions, grid cells..) (for plant species: life form, flower color, conservation status..) (collector name, collection date, stage, sex, age, length..) (rainfall, temperature, elevation, soil, land-use, nature reserves..)

5 Taxonomical links (species names) Geographical links (geographic coordinates) GIS LAYERS UNIT-LEVEL DATA SPECIES-LEVEL DATA DATABASE 1 DATABASE 2 DATABASE 3 DATABASE 1 DATABASE 2 SYST. GROUP 1 SYST. GROUP 2

6 Point data Grid-based data Text description Data Structure of BioGIS (continued) Spatial representation of species records: Polygons GIS APPLICATION
