SBDI – Swedish Biodiversity Data Infrastructure – provides data and analysis services that offer rich opportunities for innovative, interdisciplinary research on biodiversity and ecosystems. But how was SBDI formed? What is the vision, and how will the infrastructure be developed over the coming years? Here, we provide the answers.
The overall vision of SBDI is to provide a cost-effective, cutting-edge infrastructure that supports Swedish and international biodiversity and ecosystems research. We want to provide Swedish researchers with unified and open access to biodiversity data, and to a wide range of tools for querying, visualizing and analyzing this data.
SBDI supports open data and open science, that is, transparent and accessible knowledge that is shared and developed through collaborative networks. Specifically, we adhere to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable).
