Collector App

The Collector App is the backend of the biotic database system called CRITTERBASE. It is used for the import and administration of the underlying data.


What Collector App can do for you

CRITTERBASE is a software system developed by AWI and HIFMB to assist researchers in managing sample-based biodiversity data. It is open source and consists of three components: The Collector App (client, backend), the Data Space and the Web service (server, frontend).

Data collectors use the Collector App to check the quality of their data; and to convert it into CRITTERBASE, too. It is platform independent (macOS, Linux and Windows) and written in Python. On these pages you will learn about the functionality and use of the Collector App.
