A global database for the distributions of crop wild relatives
This dataset originally held 5 647 442 total records, where 34% of the records corresponded to germplasm accessions and 66% to herbarium samples. A total of 3 231 286 records had cross-checked coordinates (see Figure 2). 322 735 records were newly georeferenced using The Google Geocoding API and 15 713 new records were obtained after digitizing the information contained in herbaria specimens. Data was gathered from more than 100 data providers, including GBIF (a comprehensive list of institutions and individuals is available here: http://www.cwrdiversity.org/data-sources/ ).
The geographic coverage of the dataset includes 96% of the world countries and also includes records of cultivated plants (1/3 of the dataset). Records of the crop wild relatives of 80 crop gene pools can be queried and visualized in this interactive map: http://www.cwrdiversity.org/distribution-map/
This dataset was assembled as part of the project ‘Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change: Collecting, Protecting and Preparing Crop Wild Relatives’, which is supported by the Government of Norway. The project is managed by the Global Crop Diversity Trust and the Millennium Seed Bank of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and implemented in partnership with national and international genebanks and plant breeding institutes around the world. For further information, please refer to the project website: http://www.cwrdiversity.org/
For publication to GBIF, all records originally gathered from GBIF have been removed to avoid data duplication.

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 3,403,810 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
