Cave inventory : Lebanon

Lebanon is a small and beautiful country on the Eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
It is also a really rich place for caving : Grottocenter has 285 caves for this country.
The most famous caves are the Jeita Grotto (finalist of the New 7 Wonders of Nature) and the Afqa Grotto.

The coordinates usually used for caves in Lebanon are the Lebanon Lambert, however, with GrottoCenter you can convert it to any other coordinate reference system.
For more information about caving in Lebanon you can contact the association Libanaise d'études spéléologiques.

Grottocenter datas on VMap

 Laurent Blum has set up an application to manage caves After some exchanges with the Wikicaves association, he set up a solution to visualize the data from Grottocenter. We wanted the data to remain freely accessible, for this he created a generic user that you can use  URL: Identifier: grottocenter Password: grottocenter

Protection of sensitive caves on Grottocenter

The UIS has just sent a letter to all the federations and to the delegates of each country to invite them to contact the Wikicaves association to set up a partnership so that we define together the data available to the federations which can be directly integrated into Grottocenter and those for which special protective measures must be taken  

Grottocenter faster

Vincent, who joined the development team a few weeks ago, has just modified the code of the two applications (Back-end which provides the data and Front-end which is the one you use) in order to optimize the data which are exchanged. The result is faster page display because less information is downloaded.       I invite you to take the opportunity to contribute .
