Blue-Cloud data infrastructures: An interview with Jean-Olivier Irisson on EcoTaxa

21 December 2020

As a celebration for the successful end of the first year of Blue-Cloud, we are launching a new series of interviews with representatives of blue data infrastructures involved in the Blue-Cloud project.

We will learn more about each specific infrastructure, their contributions to the project, and the added value that Blue-Cloud is bringing to them. Let's get to know the people of Blue-Cloud, and dive into the multi-disciplinary world of our five real-life demonstrators.

The first interview in this series is with Jean-Olivier Irisson from Sorbonne Université, who will take us through the fascinating world of EcoTaxa, a web application dedicated to the visual exploration and taxonomic annotation of images showcasing planktonic biodiversity.

This infrastructure is a key part of the Blue-Cloud demonstrators "Zoo & Phytoplankton EOV Products" and "Plankton Genomics", and its data will also be integrated with the EurOBIS infrastructure in order to further expand its use and reach.

Get to know the Blue-Cloud data infrastructures!
