EcologicalData.org is powered by the open source Drupal content management system. Some of our key contributed modules include Content Locking to avoid edits being made by two people editing the same page at the same time, Flag to allow users to bookmark datasets, WYSIWYG to make editing pages simple and straightforward, along with Diff, Enforce Revlog and Talk for wiki functionality.
We are happily hosted by A Small Orange, a small Atlanta based hosting company that focuses on providing a top quality customer experience. The combination of rapid, high quality customer service and a willingness to work happily with beginners makes them an excellent host for scientific endeavors on the web.
