Request data

Floristic data of the Info Flora database are made available for scientific research and for projects in the area of nature conservation. The spatial accuracy with which the requested data can be provided depends on the context of your project and the confidentiality of the individual data. Data usage is regulated by the guidelines (in German) of the national data centers. 

Data is extracted upon request. Please use the following data request form

Following fees apply for the processing of data requests, and processing usually can take up to two weeks.

If, in addition to the floristic data, you also need to request data about other groups of organisms (fauna, cryptogams), you can address your request directly to Info Species.

Important notes:

  • For an accurate interpretation of the data it is essential to pay attention to the different codes and expertises. These include information about negative findings, uncertain and dubious identifications, accuracy of coordinates, origin of the coordinates, etc. Codes and expertises are listed in the legend for data users. 
  • Data density and data actuality can vary significantly depending on the region and the species. Indeed, for many species, only a small part of the actual occurrences are included as point data in the Info Flora database. Therefore a lack of data from a particular location does not mean that the species does not occur in that location. 
  • Info Flora can not fully verify the identification and coordinates of every incoming record of plant species occurrence; therefore, it does not guarantee the correctness of the information.
