European Micropezids & Tanypezids

Countries are thirsty for summarized data and insights for policy-making but we are running short of tools (Martinez, 2023)


Recording Projects

The following digitisation projects seek to digitise records from hand written notes

Steve Falk

Major author and prolific UK recorder. Notes were obtained by Dipterists Forum as pdf scans and a structured crowdsourcing methodology implemented to facilitate the extraction of records

A: Methodology

Sumner D.P. 2021. Biodiversity Data Management 5: Digitisation Project. Dipterists Forum Report C(10 V5), (Aug 2021)

Please adhere to the DwC methodology in the above guide. The Location & Event data has already been extracted and validated

B: Files

The following are made available as password protected ZIP files containing the pdf scan and the DwC spreadsheet file. Please enquire.

Open Data: It is a condition of the author and the Dipterists Forum project management team that datasets extracted from the above adhere to the FAIR principles: findable, accessible, interoperable & reusable. Accordingly digitisers must submit datasets compiled from the above to NBNt for upload to NBN Atlas. The Occurrence sheet in the DwC is suitable for direct submission
