What is the “Integrate” stage?

Data from multiple sources are combined into a form that can be readily analyzed. For example, you could combine citizen science project data with other sources of data to enable new analyses and investigations. Successful data integration depends on documentation of the integration process, clearly citing and making accessable the data you are using, and employing good data management practices throughout the Data Life Cycle.

More information can be found in the Best Practices Primer.
