The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is an international open data infrastructure for biodiversity, funded by governments. GBIF encourages institutions to publish data according to common standards. GBIF operates through a network of nodes, coordinating the biodiversity information facilities of Participant countries and organizations. It provides a single point of access (through GBIF.org and its web services) to hundreds of millions of records, shared freely by hundreds of institutions worldwide, making it the biggest biodiversity database on the Internet. Many GBIF Participant countries have set up national portals to better inform their citizens and policy makers about their own biodiversity. Many GBIF Participants also support data publishers/holders by setting up a data hosting centre (DHC) where the data can be deposited and shared through GBIF.org. The DHC must meet a strict set of criteria (https://github.com/gbif/ipt/wiki/dataHostingCentres#data-hosting-centre-criteria), demonstrating that they are trustworthy. A list of trusted IPT DHCs are grouped in this collection for your convenience. To get started depositing/sharing your data using an IPT DHC, locate the one nearest you, and then request your own account, which will allow you to manage your own data sets. To understand how to use the IPT and publish your data, follow this simple how-to publish guide: https://github.com/gbif/ipt/wiki/howToPublish
