EU BON test sites

The important task of the test sites will be to "test and demonstrate fitness of use of EU BON concepts, tools and techniques for data integration and analysis”. Practically it should demonstrate a complete workflow from publishing a data set using some of the tools and standards identified in WP2 -> data discovery and access via a common interface to the local test site metadata catalogues (or, via the GBIF portal) -> data integration using some custom tool that takes the discovered data sets and calculates the EBV.   A further step would be to generate an indicator from the EBV for demonstrating to decision makers and stakeholders.
