Hi OAMers,

I stumbled upon a website with *somehow* similar service where
scientists gather and share data.
The topic is about Biology and Biodiversity and I guess it is not the same load.
However the idea of contributing remotely, open source, open data, CC
license, global coordination is there.

Maybe the website/workflow/API/infrastructure can give you ideas.
Maybe they would be happy to answer specific questions.

I share some links with you, I hope it is kind of useful and not too much noise.

How GBIF works as a global informatics infrastructure
At the heart of the registry is a PostgreSQL database [view schema]
accessed exclusively through a web services API. To enable faceted
search, an embedded Apache SOLR index is maintained and exposed in the

Webservice API
The API is a RESTful JSON based API.

If you save the living environment, the biodiversity that we have left,
you will also automatically save the physical environment, too. But If
you only save the physical environment, you will ultimately lose both.

1) Don’t drive species to extinction

2) Don’t destroy a habitat that species rely on.

3) Don’t change the climate in ways that will result in the above.
