LifeWatch E-services

LifeWatch builds and operates open E-science infrastructure that can support biodiversity and ecosystem research. The developed e-services facilitate open data exchange, visualization and analysis and are provided to the user through dedicated Virtual Laboratories and applications. Virtual labs that provide marine services can be accessed through the Marine Virtual Research Environment (VRE).
Belgian LifeWatch E-Lab

One of the virtual laboratories developed by LifeWatch Belgium is the Belgian LifeWatch E-lab. This online application allows users to standardize, analyze and visualize their data, making use of web services built on top of internal and external reference databases.

A user can select several data services (taxonomic, geographic, thematic, etc.) and run them successively through a straightforward user interface. The LifeWatch.be web services can be used in a concatenated way, i.e. the output of one web service is the input for the next web service. Establishing such workflows helps solving (complicated) biological questions. The use of the LifeWatch web services is explained in a user guide and demonstrated in a few use cases.
