I would like to create a web tool for permaculture and garden designers to help them to:
- place plants more wisely according to plant requirements and properties
- find useful interactions between plants
- add custom observations and informations to database (supported by citations)
- translate content to any language
There are some plant databases that contain certain subset of all available information and most of the databases have terrible interface and no ability of users to add information and use their own language.
My goal is to gather all available data from existing databases and citing the sources. Second step would be to design the database to be able to work with all the structured data in many languages and from many (often contradictory) sources. Third step will be the user interface for effective search, so users can start using and testing the application. Next step will be the administrative user interface, so verified users can add and change the data. And finally, the last continuous never eneding step will be the maintenance of the database and translating the data to all languages, which the users will need.
