UIS- Wikicaves Working group

Hello ,

As you might  have seen  or read in the IUS report ,  Wikicaves and its database Grottocenter  are evolving  and expanding .We were wondering if  you would be willing to take part  in this project initiated in  2016  by the  the UIS and the UIS- Wikicaves Working group  to  ascertain what level of locational precision for caves  you are  ready to  accept for your  country and if you would be willing to supply information about some of  your caves in order .to expand the world database which is slowly expanding  .

 Once more,   thank you for your  contribution to the  caving community

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 .
