From the Field Studies Council's "Tomorrow's Biodiversity" (Tom.bio) project:

Tom.bio's ID Signpost is an online searchable catalogue of UK biological identification resources. A key feature is that the records of ID resources are crowd-sourced. This means that it can be kept up-to-date more easily and have a much wider reach than if only a few people were able to edit it.

Why has Tom.bio created this? During the Tomorrow's Biodiversity consultation in 2014 (in which iSpot and many others took part) there was a strong appetite for more 'signposting' of resources to enable UK biological recorders to quickly see what is available in respect of ID resources etc.
