For many of our clients, it’s all about the data & getting and staying organized & and making that information public and accessible online. They know full well it makes things run more smoothly. Here’s an example.
The City of Mound Valley, KS wanted to put all of the city’s burial records online since they get many requests for burial information that are difficult to research and locate.
So, a database was built first as a spreadsheet. All of the entries were checked top to bottom to check that all like data was in the same columns. Errors were spotted and entries corrected. This process is generally referred to as “normalizing” the data. In the end, it was imported into their website server and an application was plugged in to WordPress and the database now appears on the page of their website.
The data can be searched, filtered on any column — but cannot be edited except by the administrator.
