MedOBIS is the Mediterranean node of Ocean Biogeographic Information System. It consists of a relational postgreSQl database for cleaning and storing the datasets, the MedOBIS IPT (Integrated Publishing Toolkit- http://ipt.medobis.eu/ ) which is available for sharing data and metadata and Medobis viewer(vLab) as a geodata tool, developed by open layers for visualization. It also provides WMS and WFS services through a Geoserver which is connected to the visualization tool and to the database. OBIS and GBIF harvests all the datasets through IPT.
MedOBIS supports 51 datasets at present, 71928 occurrences with individual counts, biomasses, body lengths, etc, plus environmental values and 1108 stations. The data cover the period between 1898 – to 2012.
