Easily download all data from Grottocenter

  Vincent has just set up a service that makes it easy to download all Grottocenter data.   This takes the form of a compressed file which contains a json file per type of data (inputs, cavities, organizations, massifs, documents). The update is carried out once a month.   This service is accessible to members of the Wikicaves association and partner organizations. If you are interested in this service, do not hesitate to contact us .  

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

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 .
