Tools overview

Our tools section includes a variety tools covering different areas within freshwater science.

We start with tools for collecting and publishing metadata (Freshwater Metadatabase and Freshwater Metadata Journal), publishing occurrence data (Freshwater Biodiversity Data Portal) and publishing spatial data in map format (Global Freshwater Biodiversity Atlas).

We link to the database as a valuable tool to gain information on ecological preferences and biological characteristics of species.

Further you will find three tools that were developed within the MARS project: FIS - Freshwater Information System, diagnostic tools and scenario tool (online release planned for autunm 2017).

Our last box summarises a collection of other tools that might be helpful for your research, including modelling tools, assessment tools or GIS and R tools.
