Private-sector species data on GBIF
OpenPSD: Promoting publication and use of private-sector data on biodiversity. A joint private-sector data mobilization campaign with Asplan Viak AS, Naturrestaurering AS, COWI Norge AS, CIBIO-InBIO, University of Porto, EDP - Energias de Portugal, GBIF Spain, GBIF Portugal, GBIF Colombia (SiB), GBIF France, GBIF Norway, and the GBIF Secretariat.
A significant amount of biodiversity data is recorded every year by private companies. Collected as part of Environmental Impact Assessment studies and national monitoring programs, this data most often remains locked in reports, unavailable to the wider society.

- Dataset published in GBIF ( doi.org/10.15468/q8qykg )
- Veracity data dashboard (free data access with registration)
- How they help the oil industry see how it affects the environment (article)
- From large reports to a machine-accessible dashboard (interview, in Norwegian)
- Open data in the ocean space (video)
