Using Full or Large Sets of Freshwater AquaMaps Data
Freshwater AquaMaps is a work in progress. We strongly encourage partnering with the team for any research project or publication
that would make use of this dataset to ensure that the limitations of this version are clearly understood and addressed, and that critical maps and/or
unlikely results are recognized as such and double-checked for correctness prior to drawing conclusions
and/or subsequent publication.
The Freshwater AquaMaps team can be contacted through Rainer Froese.
AquaMaps generates standardized computer-generated and fairly reliable large scale predictions of marine and freshwater species.
Although the AquaMaps team and their collaborators have obtained data from sources believed to be reliable and have made every
reasonable effort to ensure its accuracy, many maps have not yet been verified by experts and we strongly suggest you verify
species occurrences with independent sources before usage. We will not be held responsible for any consequence from the use or
misuse of these data and/or maps by any organization or individual.
