  • Data Services provide the users with tools in order to: a) publish their datasets and make them available to the community by providing information that allows a user to locate and access the resource and its curator/creator, b) import their datasets to the Lifewatch Greece Infrastructure and to GBIF or MedOBIS, c) perform biodiversity data and information quality improvement, and d) search about datasets of interest by providing an efficient way of querying semantic networks. The schema of the data that is provided by the users is mapped to the semantic model of the LWI and the data is transformed to LWI format before it is stored to the Infrastructure. The semantic model is based on CIDOC CRM (http://www.cidoc-crm.org/), CRM dig, CRM geo, CRM sci and MarineTLO (http://www.ics.forth.gr/isl/MarineTLO/). Login is required to access the service.

  • The Karst Research Institute ZRC SAZU installed a meteorological station with soil sensors in Sela pri Otovcu (Bela krajina) in SE-Slovenia, near the habitat of black proteus (Proteus anguinus parkelj). The meteorological station with soil sensors includes a central processing and memory unit, sensors (solar radiation, air pressure, air temperature, humidity, precipitation, snow cover height, soil temperature and humidity), wireless data transmission module and power supply unit (solar panel). The equipment was purchased on 16 April 2021 within the RI-SI-LifeWatch project. It is intended for monitoring all major meteorological parameters for the purposes of ecological and karst habitat research.

  • This dataset contains daily and sub-daily hydrometeorological and soil observations from COSMOS-UK (cosmic-ray soil moisture) monitoring network from October 2013 to the end of 2019. These data are from 51 sites across the UK recording a range of hydrometeorological and soil variables. Each site in the network records the following hydrometeorological and soil data at 30 minute resolution: Radiation (short wave, long wave and net), precipitation, atmospheric pressure, air temperature, wind speed and direction, humidity, soil heat flux, and soil temperature and volumetric water content (VWC), measured by point senors at various depths. Each site hosts a cosmic-ray sensing probe; a novel sensor technology which counts fast neutrons in the surrounding atmosphere. In combination with the recorded hydrometeorological data, neutron counts are used to derive VWC over a field scale (COSMOS VWC), at two temporal resolutions (hourly and daily). The presence of snow leads to erroneously high measurements of COSMOS VWC due to all the extra water in the surrounding area. Included in the daily data are indications of snow days, on which, the COSMOS VWC are adjusted and the snow water equivalent (SWE) is given. The potential evapotranspiration (PE), derived from recorded hydrometeorological and soil are also included at daily resolution. Two levels of quality control are carried out, firstly data is run through a series of automated checks, such as range tests and spike tests, and then all data is manually inspected each week where any other faults are picked up, including sensor faults or connection issues. Quality control flags are provided for all recorded (30 minute) data, indicating the reason for any missing data. This work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council award number NE/R016429/1 as part of the UK-SCAPE programme delivering National Capability.

    This marine biodiversity observatory has been developed in the framework of the Flemish contribution to LifeWatch and applies automated and innovative technology (imaging, acoustics, genomic profiling) to capture biodiversity data in the Belgian part of the North Sea and its coastal areas. The observatory combines regular ship-based station measurements with a number of operational sensor networks. The observatory provides biodiversity and ecosystem information for the LTSER Belgian coastal waters and sand bank systems. Collected data is made available through LifeWatch data explorers, other virtual labs and global biodiversity data systems.

  • An experimental NFT (Non Fungible Token - ERC-721) whose content is related to graphics. The objective is to demonstrate the capacity of LifeBlock Testnet to support and operate NFT tokens.

  • This service aims to make available all the climatic data available on Sierra Nevada for any user interested in downloading them. It has a web form through which the user can select the different stations and variables measured in them and download data from a given date range.

  • The objective of this service is to provide LifeBlock's infrastructure with a connection point to hardware and software wallets, particularly Metamask. Through this service it is possible to connect to LifeBlock to use, manage, transfer, create tokens and LifeCoins. Technical data for this service: - Name of the net: LifeBlock Testnet - NetworkId: 3170 - RPC URL:http://135.125.10.249:8545- Currency Symbol: LifeCoin - Block explorer URL:http://135.125.10.249:25000/

  • The objective of this service is to enable the interaction of LifeBlock Testnet with a proprietary IPFS network through the use of smart contracts. This functionality allows the storage of the information identification hash in IPFS in LifeBlock Testnet. Technical data for this service: - URL: http://135.125.10.249:5000/ - Contract address: 0x42699a7612a82f1d9c36148af9c77354759b210b

  • CakeShop is a set of tools and APIs for working with Hyperledger Besu/Quorum, packaged as a Java web application archive (WAR). Tools included are blockchain explorer, node info, peer management, echanced permissions UI, solidity sandbox and contract registry. CakeShop will allow a more faster and secure deployment of LifeBlock nodes and resources.
