Description: With the cube defined (see MET-1) we need to populate the cube. We choose to do this using the backfill process, which allows us to repeat the operation in the future when we (e.g.) want to add a dimension to the cube.
This will require:
a) implementing the BackFill interface
b) iterating over the source data calling the cubeIO.writeSync(...)
See the recent GBIF blog as an introduction, which shows how to do a backfill using a MR job. Here we would not do a MR job though.
Name strings might be more complex as it looks like distinct counts are going to be required.]]>
Comment: Not planned to use the cube for CLB now
