DWB components © SNSB IT Center

The DWB training environment at the SNSB IT Center includes the following 15 databases with data from real life biodiversity and geodiversity projects as well as with a number of terminologies, gazetteers and taxonomies which are useful as structural templates for creating new ontologies.

The bio- and geodiversity data and the nature science ontologies might be modified/ changed/ re-organised/ enriched/ deleted by users who have a common log-in. The content of the databases is set back to the initial state every half year or on request. The DWB training environment is available for your personal training purposes and is used to train the participants in the regular DWB workshops.
