MoveVRE (MoveBank - Virtual Research Environment)
The DFG-funded project MoveBank Virtual Research Environment (MoveVRE) complements the running MoveBank project that started in 2007 to develop a comprehensive e-science infrastructure to store, manage, analyze, and share animal tracking data (www.movebank.org).
MoveVRE expands MoveBank with web-based collaborative tools, definition of data and metadata standards, and long-term data preservation. In addition, advanced geovisualization tools are adapted and developed through a synergistic collaboration with the Viamod project (funded by DFG grant SPP 1335). MoveVRE will be carried out by an interdisciplinary team, combining knowledge from librarians, biologists, and computer scientists. The goal of MoveVRE is to offer to the community of biodiversity an advanced e-infrastructure to face the growing research challenges that animal movement ecologists are called to address.
Ultimately, the project will provide infrastructure development that could potentially serve a wide scientific audience in other disciplines, and with little specific adaptation facilitate virtual collaboration and promote the use of long-term data archives.
Major goals of the project MoveVRE are to
