GBIF Current Best Practices for Generalizing Sensitive Species Occurrence Data

“This document aims to provide best practice (or best current practice) for dealing with sensitive primary species occurrence data, and provide guidance on how to make as much data available without at the same time opening up the species to harm because data has been placed in the public domain.


It is now more than a decade since the first Guide was published, and this new publication is designed to bring those practices up to date and to incorporate the experiences gained by institutions that have implemented the Guide in whole or in part.”
