Working in OpenWebGIS now you can create your own workspace by adding images, videos, texts, websites on the page, changing the color, size and position of the interface blocks. Then you can save your workspace on OpenWebGIS server, in the local storage of your browser or in text file for further use at any time convenient for you. So you will always have at your fingertips in one place the Geographic information system (GIS) and your any additional information from any source in the form of videos, images and websites. This can greatly improve your efficiency.
Earlier in the articles "New and old interface of OpenWebGIS" (January 2015), "Developing the new interface design of OpenWebGIS" (February 2016) and some others it was told about OpenWebGIS interface features and how it can be customized by the user. In this article, we suggest you to consider one more possibility to change the interface and adjust it to your needs. This feature already exists for some time, but it has not been told about it in detail, moreover, it has been redesigned and improved recently.
Now you can working with OpenWebGIS create your own workspace by adding images, videos, texts, websites (in iframe) on the page, changing the color, size and position of the interface blocks.

openwebgis

This article tells about working with Databases Paleobiology Database (PaleoBioDB) and The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) using an open source Geographic information system OpenWebGIS.
The data selecting from these DBs and mapping the results using OpenWebGIS was discussed in the following articles: "The information tools (data base and GIS) to help paleontologists in their scientific researches", "New feature of OpenWebGIS - mapping data from GBIF, and new Contributor".  From the article "200 million years of the dinosaurs life (sauropods) in a few seconds on the map" the following conclusion can be made, that in OpenWebGIS it is possible not only to visualize on the map data from these databases but also analyze it without using other software.
Currenlly OpenWebGIS team continues to optimize and increase the convenience to users of selecting and mapping this information. Previously only few fields were sampled from the Paleobiology Database, but now all fields are selected.
