The Mineral Atlas is a project of the Geolitho Foundation gGmbH with the aim of providing a thematic platform in the field of geology/mineralogy and mining as well as fossils. The offered information and contact and exchange opportunities are aimed equally at interested individuals, scientists and scientific or science education institutions.
Everyone is invited to contribute to the Mineral Atlas, to complete information and to provide new information.
The basic idea of this project is a wiki approach, according to Wikipedia: “A wiki (Hawaiian for “fast”) is a website whose content can not only be read by visitors, but also edited and changed directly in the web browser (Web 2.0 application).“
The Mineralienatlas provides the technical basis for this and controls the work on the content through a team of moderators and administrators.
For more on collaboration, see our summary of goals, roles, rules and principles.
Our data for your application
The Mineral Atlas forms the data basis for the Geolitho collection management, marketplace and museum, among others, via interfaces.
Reliable data exchange between applications works via standardized criteria that enable assignment.
The Mineralienatlas offers its publicly maintained data, such as locality and mineral data, as a so-called vocabulary for non-profit projects free of charge. For this purpose, Mineralienatlas provides you with an API (Application Programming Interface) tailored to your needs.
This is not meant to be a one-way street. Help to unify your and our vocabulary. If you are interested, please contact us email@example.com.
