      Description

      The GBIF backbone can be downloaded entirely as a dwc archive. We need to apply a license statement. Donald Hobern can we use a CC0 license?

          I think this may be ill-advised, since the archive is (I assume) still based on a core which represents CoL and that is not currently CC0. Can we (for now) use CC-BY and point to a list of datasets which contribute to it?

          Ok. We will also expose a "GBIF Backbone sources network" here with the latest dataset sources used:
