EASIN welcomes scientists, policy makers and the general public to contribute to the necessary updated scientific information required to tackle biological invasions.
You can contribute to EASIN project by:
Becoming a Data Partner sharing datasets of your project (find an example below);
Joining the Editorial Board , and contribute to taking care of scientific discussion and data quality;
Share your recently published research or management results on alien species (taxonomy, distribution, measures, best practices, guidelines…); to enrich the information in the EASIN Catalogue in the Alien Species Geodatabase and in Documentation and give more visibility to your work;
Sharing with us pictures of alien species and citizen science actions for communication purposes through social media and email.
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)ec.europa.eu, 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:
Scientific name of the species;
X, Y coordinates where the species has been observed (using World Geodetic System, WGS84, as reference coordinate system);
Notes about the location where the species has been observed (optional);
Date when the species has been observed (year only);
Reference to a scientific publication/data source (to allow properly citation and link data to its original source).
