Biodiversity - Delivery and Visualisation

IDA designed and implemented an R-Shiny app that draws on integrated species-occurrence biodata developed in our data federation work. The app allows the exploration of variability in selected species distributions according to spatial granularity size (10, 25, 50, and 100 km grids), time-slices of primary occurrence data, and taxonomic resolution.

As an example application, we developed an R-Shiny web application prototype to interactively visualise indigenous myrtaceae species occurrence in response to the sudden incursion of myrtle rust in May 2017.

New Zealand species occurrence data are now available for download, with visualisation and modelling through several GBIF and Australian Living Atlas websites.
