The third workshop was held in November 2017 from the 6th to the 8th hosted by the Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin .

10 participants from 4 different institutions took part.

Goal of the three-day workshop was to:

  • demonstrate the MDB prototype web application
  • test of the prototype and interview the users to obtain feedback on the current development
  • development of a commonly accepted schema for the MDB morphological description module and meta data
  • elaborate the needs and requirements of the use cases in terms of functionality and the user interface.

Furthermore the workshop gave the project partners the opportunity to report on their current work progress.

Several presentations and subsequent detailed discussions provided both new users and project members comprehensive insight to the overall objective, the technical background and current status of the implementation of the application.

The workshop focused on the development of the description and metadata forms.

The evening program allowed all participants to meet informally and to extend the discussions beyond the official agenda.
