New data standards for submitting habitat data into EurOBIS

EMODnet Seabed Habitats has teamed up with EMODnet Biology to develop a standard approach to including habitat observations as Event Core measurements when submitting data into OBIS. The work aims to facilitate interoperability between two benthic habitat data repositories and improve standardisation of species and habitat observations that may be recorded simultaneously.
Details of how habitat data can be submitted into the OBIS ecosystem are described in the jointly produced guidance document on the resources section of the portal.
