Occurrence cubes at species level for European countries



This package contains aggregated occurrence data ("occurrence cubes") at species level for European countries. These occurrence cubes were generated by grouping species occurrence data from the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) by year (year), 1x1km spatial EEA reference grid cell (eea_cell_code) and species (speciesKey). For each grouping, the number of occurrences found in GBIF (n) and the minimum coordinateUncertaintyInMeters (min_coord_uncertainty) are provided. The provided coordinateUncertaintyInMeters of an occurrence is taken into account when assigning it to a grid cell (see this code). The occurrence cubes can be used as input data for indicators, mapping and species distribution modelling.
