Providing extinction risk assessments for biodiversity with Elasticsearch

I am very proud to announce that the project by Eduardo Dalcin and me, developed inside Brasil’s National Centre for Flora Conservation, is featured in Elastic.co user stories blog.

In Providing extinction risk assessments for biodiversity with Elasticsearch we give an overview of the processes of assessing brasillian flora with the help of the Elastic stack, using Elasticsearch for indexing and Kibana for exploratory data analysis.

The mentioned tool is the Rapid Risk Assessment Application (RRAPP).

It was a great surprise already that we were invited to run for the Elastic Cause Awards, which recognizes organizations using the Elastic Stack to do great good in the world. We got a feel steps forward in the awards but were not able to make it till the end, unfortunally.

Even so, it was inspiring to see Elastic noticing it’s comunity projects and giving relevance and some spotlight to us.

So, enjoy the reading and more articles on Conservation and Biodiveristy informatics are due.
