NPT Startup Review: Suggested Additional Features

Report collating the feedback and feature requests from GBIF Participants expressed during the NPT Startup review carried out in mid-2013.


A review of the first version of the Nodes Portal Toolkit (NPT) Startup was conducted from 9 April to 20 May 2013 amongst all GBIF Node Managers and Nodes staff. The purpose and the results of the review are highlighted in the ‘NPT Startup Review: Summary Report’. As part of the NPT Startup review, GBIF Participant Nodes filled out a questionnaire. In this report, the text responses provided by GBIF Participant Nodes relating to requirements of the NPT Startup are made available. These responses are an indication of the functionalities GBIF Participant Nodes would like to see developed in the context of the NPT Startup or any more advanced form thereof in the future. In many cases the requirements should be scoped further before developments could be implemented by GBIF Participants and/or the GBIF Secretariat. In the ‘Secretariats Response to the NPT Startup Review Results’ the priorities for the development in 2013 by the Secretariat are indicated for 2013.
