Abstract: This paper describes the different roles of the Real Jardin Botanico of Madrid in the creation and use of digital tools related to biodiversity. The strongest point of this historical institution is the large amount of scientific data and items in its possession, which makes an excellent starting point for the creation of digital tools. The involvement of the Jardin Botanico in the creation of digital tools is centered on data providing, but some original tools have been developed as well, such as E-Flora Iberica, an ambitious system based on Flora Iberica. Another important role of the Botanical Garden of Madrid is that of testing the digital identification tools with users, since it receives about 500.000 visitors yearly, 50.000 of which are involved in formal education activities.
