NHM develops new data platform with AWS: The Data Ecosystem 

A vast range of UK biodiversity and environmental data will be brought together in one place for the first time, thanks to a new partnership between the British Natural History Museum and Amazon Web Services (AWS) 

Big news for research!

A vast range of UK biodiversity and environmental data will be brought together in one place for the first time, thanks to our new partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) .

We're developing a new data platform, the Data Ecosystem, using AWS technologies.

The potential impact is huge: helping our researchers build a deeper understanding of the UK’s urban biodiversity, including its composition, how it relates to environmental conditions, and how it responds to direct conservation action.

The Data Ecosystem will greatly speed up the biodiversity monitoring we do at the Museum, beginning with the Urban Nature Project, which is transforming our five-acre site into a biologically diverse green space in the heart of London

Over time, we'll able to capture all new UK biodiversity and environmental data from Natural History Museum projects in one place, creating a 'digital twin'.
