The project is the main thread of activities and it constitutes a challenge for the working group, facing the problem of designing and building a new web-based service for managing and sharing of data (ecological and environmental interest, or social).
The starting point is the philosophy of combining open source tools, FBK research products and the creativity of participants. We try to provide students an opportunity to test themselves, within a group, to acquire and apply skills (HTML, PHP, Database, GIS) and methods to multidisciplinary research (analysis and visualization of data, design systems, interaction with experts from non-specialist).
The project is always motivated from researchers coming from a specific field who are looking for a new technical solution to a real problem .(see: the problems faced in projects at WebValley)
