We wanted to create a home for our knowledgebase and created the website technology.blue-bag.com. Here we provide a range of articles and posts covering issues from using CMS systems such as Drupal through to security articles covering securing access to your website.
Over ten years ago when we started creating web sites and applications to manage biodiversity related information we needed a public website to act as a host for these projects. UKWildlife.com was created to provide web space for not for profit Biodiversity and conservation projects and provide resources for biodiversity projects.
To generate a standard database from two large databases resulting from coordinated monitoring of waterbirds in the UK. The client required a set of management utilities to enable the maintenance of core aspects of the resulting database.
To create a single database out of a series of information sources relating to species of conservation concern in Scotland. The resulting database was to be delivered with a web interface that enabled searching and updating for the clients Intranet.
To create an information management system using a standard data model and custom COM based add-ins for the Recorder 2000 software. The data model was to be populated with trial data from a number of external partner sources. The resulting database was to be presented online in a dynamic web site to enable online browsing of the data.
To design, create & host a web site to highlight the work undertaken for the LIFE project for the management and conservation of wet woodlands in Scotland. The resulting web site was also to present a gallery of photographs depicting wet woodlands and their management.
To create an online representation of the NBN Species Dictionary. The required version was to be a simple reflection of the structure of the data model to highlight the concepts and the content of the standards promoted by the Species Dictionary.
To create the foundation for a metadata standard to be used across organisations working together for the conservation of biodiversity. In addition to the production of a ’standard’ the client commissioned a metadata collection exercise to ‘pump prime’ the initiative. The client also required a dynamic web site to show case the metadata collected.
