The Nodes Portal Toolkit (NPT) is envisioned as a tool to facilitate discovery and access to GBIF-mediated data at a national, regional or thematic level, including the possibility to offer access to additional sources of information. It is an open source development led by the GBIF community for the GBIF community.
This website offers information about the project. It hosts much of the background information and serves as a public issue tracking system. See the sections 'How to participate' and 'Other sources of information' below if you want to explore other ways of participating in the project.

The NPT Startup is a basic website combined with biodiversity information targeted to those GBIF Nodes who want to create a basic web presence. To know more about the NPT Startup, including instructions on how to DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL the tool, please visit the NPT Startup site.
