Sharing datasets with EASIN

Scientists, Projects and Organizations willing to share geospatial information about alien species in Europe via EASIN are invited to contact us at JRC-EASIN(at), to become Data partner and to agree on the most suitable data sharing solution depending on the format of the available information (Excel files, shapefiles, databases, web services...).

A sample Excel file is available here and contains the minimum information required by EASIN:

  1. Scientific name of the species;

  2. X, Y coordinates where the species has been observed (using World Geodetic System, WGS84, as reference coordinate system);

  3. Notes about the location where the species has been observed (optional);

  4. Date when the species has been observed (year only);

  5. Reference to a scientific publication/data source (to allow properly citation and link data to its original source).
