Species observation data
OpenObs: National biodiversity search engine

Project context

The purpose of the « National biodiversity search engine » project is to set up a multi-criteria web-based query tool for viewing, exploring, validating and downloading species observation datas. Called OpenObs, this tool responds to the functions of the SINP national platform in terms of data dissemination.

Tool features

OpenObs currently offers the following main features:

  • Simple and advanced search (multicriteria) for data based on taxonomic, geographical, temporal and observational information (ex : observation status) and dataset (ex : dataset name)
  • Maps and table visualisation of research results
  • Filters and sorts data according to a wide range of criteria
  • Download the cartographic rendering
  • Unitary data visualization - Access to all the information transmitted by the data producers
  • Download data
  • Redirection services to create links from an external website
