WP1 (lead RBINS) is in charge of the creation of the BioFresh biodiversity data portal. This web-based science portal will be designed for providing users free and universal access to information on freshwater biodiversity, contained in a distributed network of interoperable databases. The data portal will integrate tools for web-based geospatial visualisation and analysis tools (incl. predictive models developed in the science workpackages) and will contribute to the development of a collaborative, global infrastructure for biodiversity assessment. As such, we will enable water managers to incorporate biodiversity science into effective conservation strategy, environmental management or related policy instruments.
