Biodiversity Image Repository

This repository maintained by CRIA consists of images provided by over one hundred partners over the years, through different projects. All original images, many of them in high resolution, were processed and are stored as Zoomify tiles so that online viewers can load specific parts of the image, according to the zoom level.

Images are stored in Google Cloud Storage buckets and grouped by folders. You can browse the folder structure on the left side, select a folder, visualize the images as thumbnails, and select an image to see in detail. Metadata is stored in BigQuery and is displayed at the top bar for the current folder. Metadata for each image is available by clicking the info button (i) on the control bar of the image. License is CC BY-SA 4.0 (Creative Commons Attribution – Share Alike License), so please make sure proper credits are attributed when using these images.
