Welcome to AntData

This site provides data to AntWiki that can't be effectively managed within a Wiki environment. Currently this includes genus-level distribution data and will be expanded to include ecological and specimen details as well. Semantic MediaWiki provides the structure necessary for managing these data while being largely compatible with the MediaWiki software used by AntWiki.

Note that there is no direct link between AntWiki and AntData. Instead, scripts are run at regular intervals to process data held by AntData and transfer it to AntWiki for display. Essentially, AntData acts as a data store for AntWiki. This means that changes made here won't appear on AntWiki until the next day.

For an example of the results of this data transfer see AntWiki's genus distribution maps.
