Activities CENPAT­-CONICET centralizes biological information about the distribution of vertebrates from the coastal areas of Argentina and the continental shelf of the South-western Atlantic Ocean. It also integrates data about the distribution of resident vertebrates which emigrate to the Southern Ocean and the Pacific. The objective is to provide to better knowledge of the Patagonian Large Marine Ecosystem, through a web-accessible tool that facilitates the analysis of species distribution patterns. At regional level CENPAT­-CONICET is presented as a functional precursor for data base and mapping tools to build on a standardized model that can be enlarged and validated. The database services increase the academic impact generated by regional projects by sending interoperable information to national (SNDB and SNDM) and global (OBIS) databases. In IODE, CENPAT­-CONICET will act as the Argentinian OBIS node.
