  • This service aims at enabling the dataset uploading from the user. It represents the Step 1b of the Biotope vulnerability Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.

  • This service aims to download the sequences files (fasq files) that have been choosen in Step 4 (ARMS Choose and Parameterize) in order to run PEMA. It represents the Step 5.1 of the ARMS Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.

  • This service aims at normalizing the user datasets to be consistent with the accepted formats. It represents the Step 3 of the Biotope vulnerability Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.

  • The size density relationships web service calculates and describes the relationships between size (total biovolume and total carbon content) and density for any given combination of spatial, temporal and taxonomic level of observations. The service works on datasets structured according to the Phytoplankton Data Template that can be selected by the GUI or uploaded by the researchers. The input file is in CSV format with some mandatory fields (density, biovolume or cell carbon content). Before selecting or uploading the input file, users have to specify some parameters (e.g., the trait to be used for the size distribution, the taxonomic level for the size distribution and the spatial and temporal levels for the clusterization of data). The web service provides as output a zip file containing two summary tables in csv format and a scatter plot.

  • This service aims at building two datacubes based on the occurrences. The datacube aggregates (=counts) occurrences on a regular grid. This count has a stochastic component that takes the uncertainty field into account. All this process has been developed in R in the frame of the TrIAS project. It represents the Step 4 of the Biotope vulnerability Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.

  • This service aims at getting the ARMS collection file from the IMIS database. Since the URL of the ARMS file changes each time the file is updated, and this update is transmitted to the IMIS metadata record, it is necessary to always access the URL of the file from the field in the json format of the IMIS metadata record rather than via a fixed URL. This service represents the Step 1 of the ARMS Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.

  • This step of the ARMS IJI workflow does the following: - Input: the OTU tables from the previous step (running the omics pipeline), containing taxa (usually genus or species names) obtained from the databases used by the pipeline; - Check: using the WoRMS taxon match webservice to check for the WoRMS match to those taxa; - Output: the WoRMS match (yes or not) and, if matched, the scientific name and aphiaID. It represents the Step 7 of the ARMS Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.

  • NICHE Vlaanderen (Nature Impact Assessment of Changes in Hydro-Ecological Systems) is a hydro-ecological model that predicts the potential occurrence of (ground)water-dependent vegetation types in an area based on information about the (abiotic) site conditions. NICHE Vlaanderen can be used to evaluate the impact of changes in the water management to groundwater-dependent vegetation. The model is based on a number of location factors that are important for the vegetation: soil type, hydrology, nutrient availability and acidity. Based on calculated abiotic properties of the location NICHE Vlaanderen determines whether certain vegetation types can develop. An additional flooding module allows the user to test whether the predicted vegetations are compatible with a particular flooding regime. This project is a redevelopment of an existing ArcGIS plugin in Python, without external non-open source dependencies.

  • Dealing with different names of geographic features or entities, VLIZ developed a standard, relational list of geographic names, coupled with information and maps of the geographic location of these features. The purpose of the gazetteer is to improve access and clarity of the different geographic, mainly marine names such as seas, sandbanks, ridges, bays or even standard sampling stations used in marine research. The geographic cover is global; however the gazetteer is focused on the Belgian Continental Shelf, the Scheldt Estuary and the Southern Bight of the North Sea. The Marine Regions Gazetteer is accessible both for humans and machines in different ways: - through the web portal by means of the search engine interface; - through REST APIs; - through SOAP calls; - through Linked Data Event Streams; - through an ad-hoc developed R Package: 'mregions'.

  • IPFS is a peer-to-peer (p2p) storage network. Content is accessible through peers located anywhere in the LifeWatch ERIC network, that might relay information, store it, or do both. IPFS knows how to find files by using its content address rather than its location. It will be used mainly by the blockchain services.
