Biosphere Data Commons
This is the case brought to us by Predator Free New Zealand and the New Zealand Biological Heritage Science Challenge.
These two overlapping Communities of Interest have a shared aim to build a national data integration and reuse capability that enables scientists, ecologists, and all groups with an interest in new Zealand’s ecosystem to be able to collaborate, coordinate, and build intellectual and social capital that helps New Zealanders support the environment. They have a data reuse and integration challenge.
In particular there is renewed interest in data integration due to a national level-interest in supporting the effort to make NZ predator-free by 2050.
