GrottoCenter Tips n°2

You come back from a caving trip... The time has come to share with the community.

First you need to log in to GrottoCenter

Then you need to find your cave in the database. There is multiple ways to do that but the simpler is to find it on the map an then click on the cave pack which represent it.


You can update the details about the position, the depth,  the length, the address, ... but this will be detailed in an other post.
Today you will tell what you discover during your caving trip and if you enjoyed it. To do that you need to click on the red "Detailed sheet..." link in the pop up.
A new page let you add information.




To add information on a section which is empty, just click on the "+" on the right.
For a section which already has information you have 2 choices :
  • You can enrich/update the existing info by clicking on the pencil icon on the left
  • You can add a totally new info by clicking on the "+" on the left
Be careful : To save your changes you need to validate it by accepting the CC BY NC license for the content you enter.
 

Don't forget to at least add a comment on the detailed sheet. The "Comments" section is less formal than the other sections. In a comment, you can give your own point of view which is often really useful for the cavers who wish to visit this cave.
GrottoCenter automatically generate from the comments a graph which give a summary on the global interest of the cave.
