Significant relevant features of ecodb:

  • Highly cost effective cloud-based solution for enabling data entry from geographically diverse contributors;
  • Data entry allows for site observations as well as actual data values, both of which can be reviewed and edited;
  • Ability of ecodb to undertake basic checking of data values at point of data entry to ensure that they are in recognized ranges that have been pre-defined by the Administrator for individual sites.
  • License Administrator has control over assigning quality assurance values, and has unique control over whether to publish the data sets to the public domain which can be activated or retracted on a click of a button;
  • Graphical display of data sets over time, as well as graphical comparison between multiple data sets even with different parameters being monitored.
  • Rapid large scale site monitoring establishment for managing numerous monitoring groups.
  • Data may be entered discretely or through a rapid absorption of the whole file (primarily for ease of legacy data take-up).
  • Range of functions that enable the visualization of the data sets on-line, as well as a range of data download functions;
  • Customized data entry screens available on request;
  • Facilitates data sharing with common interest groups, whilst always acknowledging the original data set collection originator.
  • Identification of your social media links within your e-projects to enable the public to engage and follow your projects;
  • Ability to list and graphically display (using Google Earth) data sets specific to your organization.
  • Supports stand-alone, as well as team based and collaborative projects, with unlimited sub-accounts.
