OBIS (Ocean Biogeographic Information System)
OBIS is interested in working with DataONE at some point in the future. It has some similarity to GBIF in that it aggregates data from many different ocean biodiversity nodes (some are regional or country based and others are theme-based). If we add GBIF, we presumably also get the OBIS data.
After we add GBIF, we can revisit OBIS and see where they are irt participation with DataONE (there is an OBIS-USA component which might be a good place to start).
Bill Michener is our POC as he has quarterly calls with the OBIS advisory group.
