Our Story

The Malaysian state of Sabah on Borneo Island sits in the midst of one of the biodiversity hot spots of the world. One of its major concerns is the potential loss of biodiversity due to industrial development such as Oil Palm plantations. To enact effective policies to conserve biodiversity, Sabah needs an accurate and integrated view of its biodiversity.

Unfortunately, such knowledge is scattered in more than 20 organizations that collect specimen data in different formats and schemas and is always stored locally in silos. Furthermore, biodiversity information, including flora and fauna, covers vast and diverse subjects that are very difficult to model with traditional information modeling techniques. Merging this diverse information together to enable integrated understanding and discovery is a data integrating problem of mammoth proportion.
