The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is a major integrator of biodiversity occurrence data and thus a top priority for integration in EU BON. The GBIF informatics architecture provides unified access via a web portal and web services to a global network of data publishers. Through appropriate standards and tools, the infrastructure is designed to serve three main types of data: metadata (i.e., descriptions of datasets), primary biodiversity data and names data.
