The exploration and exploitation of mountain biodiversity data by the global mountain biodiversity community, citizen scientists, stakeholders, and policy makers requires efficient and user-friendly informatics tools. GMBA is the driver behind the Mountain Portal, a state-of-the-art web portal for mountain biodiversity data mobilization, query, visualization, and analysis.
The mountain portal uses the GMBA mountain definition and associated ruggedness filter described in Körner et al. (2011) and applies the GMBA mountain inventory described in Körner et al. (2016). The GMBA ruggedness data and the GMBA mountain inventory are available for unrestricted download.
