Abstract: OBIS was established by the Census of Marine Life program ( It is an evolving strategic alliance of people and organizations sharing a vision to make marine biogeographic data, from all over the world, freely available over the World Wide Web. It is not a project or program, and is not limited to data from CoML-related projects. Any organization, consortium, project or individual may contribute to OBIS. OBIS provides, on an ‘open access’ basis through the World Wide Web: (1) taxonomically and geographically resolved data on marine life and the ocean environment; (2) interoperability with similar databases; (3) software tools for data exploration and analysis.
