Agenda

 

 

 

The IABIN (www.iabin.net) Technical Working Group Meeting was held in Knoxville, Tennessee August 4-6, 2010. The information technology representatives from the Coordinating Institutions reviewed the status of tools/applications, data content grants, (http://www.oas.org/dsd/IABIN/Component2.htm), and value added products, that are being financed under Component #3 (http://int.usde.oas.org/IABIN/Component%203v2/Component3v2.htm ).  The meeting was organized by Mike Frame, coordinator of the IABIN Catalogue (http://iabin-catalog.nbii.gov/portal/server.pt).  

 

The overall goal was to get better coordination between the Thematic Institutions.  Thus data from species/specimens, pollinators, invasive species, protected areas, and ecosystems will be uploaded on a geospatial platform (DataBasin -- http://databasin.org) and manipulated to facilitate research on climate change, ecosystems services, and carbon sequestration potential for possible carbon offset projects (as examples) that might be further explored through a follow up IABIN project.  The agenda of an IEC/Coordinating Institution meeting to be held February 14-16, 2011 at INBio in Costa Rica was discussed.
