Portals synced with GBIF daily
The Synthesys and the German Botany Portal are synchronised with GBIF every night at 2am CET now.
The data chaches behinde the two portals are linked to the global GBIF data index through the "slice generator". But instead of exposing all records through one interface as GBIF does, the portals focus on European and German botanical objects respectively. The portals are continuously available during the synchronisation phase, but you may experience some slightly slower responses as usual.
