EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy

The EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy is a collection of open source tools and services which together cover all aspects of the workflow of the workflow in biology for describing, classifying and naming groups of organisms. The workflow is grouped into the following areas: taxonomic editing; publishing of edited data; data storage and exchange; collections and specimens; descriptions; fieldwork; literature; and geography. At the heart of the Cybertaxonomy platform is the Common Data Model (CDM), a repository for every conceivable type of data produced by taxonomists in the course of their work, and the backend for most EDIT components.
