Yes. Makes table of surveys per expo which shows exactly what needs doing. Displays scans. Integrated with survex, scanner software, and tunnel.

See it at . Be sure to try a recent year when we should have data. Survex, scanner, and tunnel integration still needs doing.

Web browser used to enter data



Everything can be edited through admin, at . Ask aaron, martin, or julian for the password if you want to have a look / play around with the admin site. Any changes you make will be overwritten. Eventually, data entry will probably be done using custom forms.
