Data Exchange

We provide safe methods to get the most out of your data.

IrisBG supports exchange of data with external software and recipients. This allows you to share your data and benefit from all the work you have invested.

The integrity, quality and safety of your data are very important. To protect the data we don’t allow direct access to the database or any use of components in the IrisBG software.

We support these methods of data exchange:

Export using reports
Reports are available out of the box. We have tailored exports for BGCI and Darwin Core 2. The latter can be used for transfer to GBIF and other databases. We will add new reports upon request.

Customized export and import
We create interfaces (closed APIs) that can be used by external software and we take responsibility for the safety of your data. To prevent abuse, a free key in your IrisBG license is required.

Export and import using background tasks
Background tasks are used by the IrisBG Task Scheduler and can be used freely to automate reports. For data export and import we require a free key in your IrisBG license and will verify that the use complies with our quality requirements.
