CDM for Groups or Institutions
The EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy "Group Installation" is a software suite supporting collaborative work on a common taxonomic data store within a single institution. It consist of a single networked database installation as well as per User installations of the EDIT desktop taxonomic editor. In contrast to the Individual installation scheme, the Group installation comes with a World Wide Web portal, which is used to publish the taxonomic data electronically. The portal's design is highly configurable and can be adapted to the particular needs of a given taxonomic project. The Group installation is for use within an institutional intranet only. However, remote access can be realized via upgrade to Community Installation.
The Group Installation needs some support of a system administration. In particular the setup of the EDIT Data Portal as well as the common data store typically requires administrator access rights to a web servers and database servers. Please contact you system administrator for installation support.
