New Data Usage Statistics Online

One of the main uses cases for the BioCASe Provider Software is data provision to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). Currently roughly 35 million specimen and observation records are fed into the GBIF network, which can be accessed and downloaded through the GBIF data portal.

The newly created GBIF data usage page displays usage statistics for those BioCASe-mediated information. It lists the number of records downloaded through GBIF, grouped by provider, year and month, as well as the total number of BioCASe records contained in these downloads. The numbers are updated weekly.
