Hi Eduardo,

it would be interesting to have example of the kinds of problems you encounter with GBIF data, so that we can look at was to fix the problems. It would also be interesting to know whether you would be able to provide GBIF with the corrections you make to GBIF data. It seems clear that lots of people are cleaning data in their own projects, but that doesn’t filter back to GBIF.

The problem with these tools (LontraHarvest, OpenRefine, etc.) is that they are just data *retrieval* tools, not providing for data analytical and representation functionalities

Mauro, for me this is a ​blessing! :)

At CNC Flora workflow, the data from GBIF is useless the way it is, because it have to be validated first, taxonomically and spatially. Only after the process of the cleaning, georeferencing and validation with the expert, the data will be analyzed to take part of the risk assessment.
