Weather and climate prediction and high-performance computing have gone hand in hand in the last few decades. Current activities in this field rely on different digital infrastructures needed both for running computationally expensive global and regional climate models (HPC infrastructures), and for storing and making available the resulting scientific data and metadata (GRID infrastructures)....
9. Mapping Species Knowledge– the value of data and digital infrastructure to address the extinction crisis

The wealth of species in our planet is critical for our survival. However, we are losing species at a rate equivalent to a mass extinction event.

Design of species conservation strategies and policies directly rely on accessible information, such as...
