Following the guidelines and technical standards defined by LifeWatch, Sweden was the first country in Europe to begin constructing a national e-infrastructure for biodiversity data. 

Its main objective is to make major national biodiversity databases interoperable and thereby accessible through standardized web services…..


Swedish LifeWatch will provide public access to species and ecosystems data derived from research, national inventories, environmental monitoring, natural history museum collections and citizen science. The data is stored in a network of distributed databases but accessible through a single web portal where it can be combined also with geographical, environmental and monitoring data.
