Keep it small and simple

The project ‚Virtual Guide to the Flora of Mongolia – Plant Database as Practical Approach‘ was often asked: Why did you restrict yourself to the region of Mongolia?

Here are the TOP 3 of our answers:

  1. Because of long-term research cooperation between Mongolia and Germany resulting in comprehensive herbaria collection
  2. Because of name-space requirements: plant names are valid within the namespace of the floristic region, just like a variable is valid within the namespace of the programming context
  3. Because of limited project staff: the web application had to be that smart, well-arranged and user-optimized that it could be implemented, programmed and maintained with minimum of staff
