for supporting open access biological databases

There are two objectives of the openbiomaps project: First, to maintain an open and free biological database service, and; Second, to develop biological data handling software applications. The openbiomaps project thus provides a stable background for open and free biological databases, specifically for scientists and conservationists, and its customizable toolset facilitates easy access and management of data.

Dear OpenBioMaps users!

We would like to invite you to an exciting competition, the prize of which is a FairPhone (the only environmentally conscious mobile device manufacturer in the world) FP3 mobile phone. The device is one of the test phones we received from the manufacturer, which we tried, tested and finally donated to us by the manufacturer.

If you want to participate in the competition, please send an email to the info 'at' from the email address registered in openbiomaps with the name of the server / project you are participating in - by March 1st. You can compete with several projects!

The best will be interpreted as calculating an index value taking into account the data uploaded, the number of species and the data collection activity - pro rata temporis. If more than one candidate with the same index value comes out at the end of the competition, the winner will be drawn!
FP3 verseny - 2021-02-01 - 2021-03-01.
