The LifeWatchGreece Special Collection is now available in Biodiversity Data Journal, with a series of articles highlighting key contributions to the large-scale European LifeWatch RI.
The Software Description papers explain the LifeWatchGreece Portal, where all the e-Services and the vLabs provided by LifeWatchGreece RI are hosted; the Data-Services based on semantic web technologies, which provide detailed and specialized search paths to facilitate data mining; the R vLab which can be used for a series of statistical analyses in ecology, based on an integrated and optimized online R environment; and the Micro-CT vLab, which allows the online exploration, dissemination and interactive manipulation of micro-tomography datasets.
The LifeWatchGreece team participated in the European Researcher’s Night 2019 event, which took place on Friday 27 September in CretAquarium, Thalassocosmos (Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, Heraklion, Greece). The event was attended by hundreds of people who had the opportunity to learn about marine research and aquatic biodiversity in different thematic pavilions and interactive activities.
