The "proof of concept" of EMODnet is being tested through preparatory actions. Portals for a number of maritime basins are being set up for
data as well as functional habitat maps. These portals will provide access to marine data of a standard format and known quality and identify gaps in coverage. The projects will identify the main challenges in moving from an ur-EMODnet to an operational EMODnet.
