Welcome to the Encyclopedia of Life's Open Data portal!

This is our platform for serving data to users who prefer downloadable files. Various categories of datasets are present, from source files provided by our data partners, to aggregate files of all available data for certain traits. Most of the data you will find here is in modified DarwinCore Archive or CSV format. We are still populating the platform with frequently used datasets from the open data holdings of EOL. New files will appear over time.
