This module introduces data processing and analytical tools using data source APIs, GIS, R and Python scripts developed by ACB.

This module introduces concepts on the use of biodiversity information as support to decision-making.

This course introduces various data processing and analytical tools for working with biodiversity data from online data sources, available data from AHPs/PAs and other information used by AHPs/PAs.

This module aims to enhance the capacity of students to implement biodiversity data mobilization efforts effectively and according to globally-accepted data standards. The course focuses on the technical aspects of data mobilization specifically:  introducing the Darwin Core Data Standard, transforming data from their verbatim forms into Darwin Core, and merging the different data into a coherent output that can be accepted and published by global data holders.

This module provides an overview of available biodiversity data from global sources.

After the course, participants are expected to be:

  • Familiar with global data sources and how their information is shared across a wide network
  • Able to download data and information from these global sources

This course aims to introduce the newly emerging biodiversity monitoring tool, the soundscape recorder. The skills gained by participants from this course is further aimed at enhancing the monitoring of species and ecosystems, while utilizing a cost-effective tool for the estimation of species occupancy, abundance, population density and community composition, monitoring spatial and temporal trends in animal behavior, and calculating acoustic proxies for metrics of biodiversity.

Biodiversity Data provides a brief introduction on biodiversity data and the processes leading towards the generation of knowledge products to support management and conservation activities and decision-making, particularly in protected areas and ASEAN Heritage Parks.
