Biodiversity Informatics Working Group 

IMERSS’ biodiversity informatics program is a collaboration among computer scientists and ecologists working to advance open-source technologies that support a community-based approach to biodiversity research and monitoring. Through our diverse projects, we are bootstrapping development of a biodiversity informatics framework, to support our vision of creating a bioregional atlas for the Salish Sea.
