DescriptionEarthCape is a highly versatile platform for managing biodiversity research and collections data, associated molecular laboratory data, multimedia, structured ecological surveys and monitoring schemes, and more. The platform includes a fully functional Windows client as well as a web application. The data are stored in the cloud or on-premises and can be accessed by users with various access and editing rights. Routine label printing, laboratory notebook maintenance, rapid data entry set up, or any other of relatively loaded user interfaces make use of any industry standard relational database back end. This opens a wide scope for IT designers to implement desired integrations within their institutional infrastructure. APIs and developer access to core EarthCape libraries to build own applications and modules are under development. Basic data visualization (charts, pivots, dashboards), mapping (full featured desktop GIS module), data outputs (report and label designer) are tailored not only to research analyses, but also for managing logistics and communication when working on (data) papers.
