Plant database for KVANN

During the winter of 2019/20, the association KVANN has a new website built in WordPress with an internal social media platform (BuddyPress), an online store (Woocommerce) and an early version of a plant database solution (built partly in Pods) which is currently being implemented.

Here, core data and user data are integrated in a common solution built in WordPress (with a plugin called Pods (pods.io) that establishes a separate database within WordPress). That solution has now

  • an internal encyclopedia with relevant families, genera, species and varieties
  • system for creating accessions list with actual material shared between the members
  • system to activate accessions on member profile and
  • system to show which accessions members share seeds and plant material from and finally an automatically updated a catalog showing who shares what

During fall / early winter 2020, this database will be quality checked and accessions will begin to be created so that members can activate these and use the catalog.
