What are you planning for the future development of WissKI?

In the scope of the current project the virtual research environment will be developed further based on the WissKI software and in cooperation with the partner institutions a competence center will be established. In this regard, the museums using WissKI (Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum Alexander Koenig) provided positions to guarantee the utilisability of the software. On this basis, even after the end of project the maintenance and support of the software are ensured. For long-term proposal and support of non-profit properties the association IGSD - Interessengemeinschaft für semantische Datenverarbeitung e.V. (http://www.igsd-ev.de) - was founded. There will be a spin-off to provide further services. Moreover, the WissKI software is Open Source. Therefore the source code can be completely reviewed and also edited by a third party. You can find the complete WissKI development on GitHub (https://github.com/wisski).
