Abstract:

The International Radiocarbon Soils DataBase is hosted on a webserver and can be accessed directly from the internet. The URL is: http://irsdb.de
To improve the usability, the user interface was changed from a Wiki to a WordPress CMS. Gained advantages are a Wysiwyg editor and several features which can be put together in a modular system by freely available plugins. While maintaining the open source approach, the WordPress version supports version control like the Wiki, but additionally offers a finetuned user rights control, a direct database administration tool, sophisticated input forms, and an automated database backup routine via plugins. This system can easily be maintained, updated and extended, mostly without knowledge of a programming language. Available data can be added to the database online after registration. Supporters in further development of the website are welcome. For easy collaboration, a Subversion repository of all code and data is maintained.
