Hello there bee hacker/data cruncher/expert/enthousiast!

Looking for some data to power your awesome bee idea! Look no further: we’ve done our utmost best to locate and make available the most interesting and relevant bee-related datasets. You can find them here: :point_down:

This list is far from exhaustive and we are on the lookout for even more data: do you know about or have access to a vital dataset that’s not our radar yet? Are you in desperate need of a specific piece of data?

Please share your data gems and/or data-related troubles with our little bee community by replying to this topic. We all benefit from knowing which data is available or necessary to perform meaningful analyses and build great solutions.

Have you found a dataset but need more information about it or can’t get it to dance to your tune? Please feel free to ask for assistance in πŸ’Ύ Data, data, data usage and troubleshooting πŸ›  and we’ll try to help as best as we can.

Happy hacking!

Hi all, much data on the distribution of bees and plants can be found at http://gbif.org . Don’t forget to cite the datasets. Succes and I am available on nlbif@naturalis.nl if necessary. Best regards, Niels Raes

Hi @Niels, thanks for the reminder! The GBIF is on our radar: we link to the Dutch Vegetation Database in GBIF In the Data Inventory document.

I’ve also added the GBIF itself under the Bee Data section.

Note to me: Peter Jan Keizer tells me about evaluation research being done in the area of Midden Delfland, where Naturalis and Rijkswaterstaat compared occurrence of insects on normal grass seed mixture used by RWS (3 grass species) versus bee friendly mixtures. Important outcome was that (multi annual) traditional roadsides have the same number of insects as bee friendly mixtures (where many of the flowers are pioneering species). I have requested data and report, will upload when available (/c @Koos)

For the Beespot.eu solution (challenge: decision support for beekeepers), the data sources are Food4Bees indexkaart and Apiary Map. Beespot code shared on Github here.
