Are checklists, metadata, downloads, etc. GBIF-mediated data?
From the home page:
"This open incentive competition seeks to encourage innovative uses of the more than half a billion species occurrence records mobilized through GBIF’s international network." "The submission can be anything that provides new representations or insights using GBIF-mediated data."
Does this mean that the challenge will not accept submissions that make (exclusive use) of 1) checklist data, 2) dataset metadata or 3) download statistics? Or are those data - which are also available through the GBIF APIs - also considered "GBIF-mediated data"?
In other words, do submissions always need to build upon occurrence data?
