Data

The Belgian LifeWatch infrastructure is continuously generating biodiversity and ecosystems data through its local observatories and its data integration and archeology activities. Access to these data is provided through local, regional and global data systems.

Local observatory data

The themes below give access to the sensor data generated by the local marine-freshwater-terrestrial LifeWatch observatory.

LifeWatch data archeology activities

The objectives of the Belgian LifeWatch data archeology activities are to fill in the spatial and temporal gaps in the biological data that is currently available to science, to resurface existing biological datasets and to improve the accessibility and visibility of the data for the scientific community.
