The UNAM opens the door to share millions of open data for the benefit of education and research. With this portal (www.datosabiertos.unam.mx) the university shares records of digital collections, academic research projects, repositories and publications to generate new knowledge. This way, it works as an online access point to search university collections authorized for their use, reuse and free redistribution by anyone, without copyright restrictions, patents or other control mechanisms, as long as the Terms of Free Use for UNAM Open Data are respected. The UNAM Open Data Portal contains data, digital objects and geospatial layers of biological collections, artistic work, music, veterinary medicine, university projects, among others. It allows databases to be consulted and downloaded in open and structured formats. One of the most outstanding collections is the National Herbarium of Mexico (MEXU), with almost two million records and high resolution images of plants around the world, mainly collected in Mexico. MEXU is the largest herbarium in the country and in Latin America; it’s among one of the ten most active herbariums in the world.

Morph·D·Base has been developed to serve scientific research and education. It provides a platform for storing the detailed documentation of all material, methods, procedures, and concepts applied, together with the specific parameters, values, techniques, and instruments used during morphological data production. In other words, it's purpose is to provide a publicly available resource for recording and documenting morphological metadata. Moreover, it is also a repository for different types of media files that can be uploaded in order to serve as support and empirical substantiation of the results of morphological investigations. Our long-term perspective with Morph·D·Base is to provide an instrument that will enable a highly formalized and standardized way of generating morphological descriptions using a morphological ontology that will be based on the web ontology language (OWL - http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-features/). This, however, represents a project that is still in development.

The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) combines and provides scientifically collected data from a wide range of sources such as museums, herbaria, community groups, government departments, individuals and universities. Data records consist of images, literature, molecular DNA data, identification keys, species interaction data, species profile data, nomenclature, source data, conservation indicators, and spatial data.
Accredited through the MEDIN partnership, and core-funded by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Scottish Government, DASSH provides tools and services for the long-term curation, management and publication of marine species and habitats data, within the UK and internationally. Working closely with partners and data providers we are committed to the FAIR Data Principles, to make marine biodiversity data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. DASSH is a flagship initiative of the Marine Biological Association (MBA), and builds on the MBA's historic role in marine science. Through partnerships with other UK and European data centres DASSH contributes to data portals including the NBN Atlas, EMODnet, EurOBIS and GBIF. On an international scale DASSH is also the UK node of the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS), and an Associated Data Unit of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE), giving the Data Archive Centre global recognition.
The DNA Bank Network was established in spring 2007 and was funded until 2011 by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The network was initiated by GBIF Germany (Global Biodiversity Information Facility). It offers a worldwide unique concept. DNA bank databases of all partners are linked and are accessible via a central web portal, providing DNA samples of complementary collections (microorganisms, protists, plants, algae, fungi and animals). The DNA Bank Network was one of the founders of the Global Genome Biodiversity Network (GGBN) and is fully merged with GGBN today. GGBN agreed on using the data model proposed by the DNA Bank Network. The Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem (BGBM) hosts the technical secretariat of GGBN and its virtual infrastructure. The main focus of the DNA Bank Network is to enhance taxonomic, systematic, genetic, conservation and evolutionary studies by providing: • high quality, long-term storage of DNA material on which molecular studies have been performed, so that results can be verified, extended, and complemented, • complete on-line documentation of each sample, including the provenance of the original material, the place of voucher deposit, information about DNA quality and extraction methodology, digital images of vouchers and links to published molecular data if available.

The Colombian Biodiversity Information Facility (SiB Colombia) is a national initiative established in early 2000 and coordinated by Instituto Humboldt to facilitate free and open access to biodiversity data. It comprises a network of more than 100 organizations (including universities, biological collections, research institutes, environmental authorities and NGOs among others) that work together to ensure that biodiversity data is available to support further research, education, policy making and incentive measures for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity. SiB Colombia’s mission is to facilitate the management of biodiversity data by bringing together users, publishers and data producers to support research, education and decision making related to knowledge, conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services. SiB Colombia aims to consolidate the collaborative platform that facilitates the generation, use and democratization of knowledge on the biodiversity of Colombia. Thus, SiB Colombia contributes to a vision of a society that knows and values the biodiversity in which it is immersed, and uses such knowledge for its development.
