Thanks Carlos,

I suggest we add this to our agenda to discuss in our meeting on Monday.
Markus and I would like to understand your overall data management and we can then explain what tools might be a good fit to explore.

Vicente, we’re meeting at 14:00 Monday – please ping me on slack if you would like to join that.

Subject: [ALA-Portal] Myriatrix Scratchpad conversion to Living Atlas
Dear colleagues,
As some of you may know, the Natural History Museum of London has decided to stop supporting the virtual research environment Scratchpads, as the underlying Drupal 7 is coming to its end of life and the NHM does not have the resources to migrate Scratchpads to a newer Drupal version.
Since 2019, I have put a lot of effort into the Myriatrix Scratchpad (https://myriatrix.myspecies.info/), dedicated to the Myriapoda and Onychophora of the world. I would like to continue maintaining the database and keeping it accessible online. Would it be possible for the Atlas of Living Australia / Living Atlases community to support me with converting Myriatrix into a Living Atlas? I will be happy to contribute back, e. g., with updated classifications (taxonomic backbones) for Myriapoda and Onychophora in the other Living Atlases.
Kind regards,

Carlos A. Martínez Muñoz
