This service intersects the map(s) (geographical spatial polygons) from GBIF occurrence(s) with the locations of a list of taxa detected from eDNA metabarcoding and which were not included in the NIS checklist to verify if such eDNA detection(s) is/are likely to be new NIS detected in that location from eDNA sequences. It represents the Step 5 of the Metabarcoding Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.
This service extracts from GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility) taxa occurrence records that were not classified as NIS in Step 3 (GBIF NIS Verifier) of the Metabarcoding workflow. This step aims to verify if eDNA detections were identified outside the known distribution range using GBIF occurrences records. Additionally, for such eDNA detections, this step produces a geographical spatial polygon based on occurrence records available in GBIF. It represents the Step 4 of the Metabarcoding Workflow within the Internal Joint Initiative.
