scientific project on cave morphology and tectonic movements


Dr. Alex Dudashvili  and the Fund of Preservation and Exploration of Caves are leading a scientific project with the Kyrgyz-Russia Slavic University The aim of the project is  to estimate of paleoearthquake frequency in the Kyrgyzstan area  and get more data  on the frequency or recurrence of the ancient earthquakes which shook  Central Asia. Scientists try   to understand  the  correlation of cave morphology with tectonic movements and  to improve   interpretation and reconstruction of paleo-seismic events .
 Sponsors, partners and scientists interested in the project are  most welcome !

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 .
