1.75 million specimen records now freely available.
Thanks to the lovely folks at VertNet and some cool techybods at Canadensys we've finally launched IPT provider and it's full of lovely data! Over 1.75 million botanical and zoological specimens are now freely available to the scientific community and public as downloadable Darwin Core Archive files. That's 95% or our digital holdings in those two groups.
IPT is GBIFs Integrated Publishing Toolkit and is a way to package data into a standard format.
