Contribution to the concept and implementation of the Biodiversity data centre
This paper first provides some background on the data centre concept developed by the EEA. It then summarises the main systems and data flows relating to biodiversity data that are already in place across Europe (or under development). Any issues around different themes such as data flow or specific entities such as species, habitats and sites are explored. These issues are then summarised into a set of broader issues which are used to frame the potential areas that the BDC could potentially tackle as initial priorities.
