Columbia University - Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory

Black Hammer developed the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory web site for Columbia University as a resource for scientists, students of the university, and the public.

Developed with Drupal, the open source web development and content management system, the LDEO web site offers a tremendous variety of content to its varying constituencies, from RSS and ATOM feeds, to fully updatable project data repositories, to general information about campus life and outreach programs. The web 2.0 design provided by Black Hammer completely updated the LDEO web presence, increasing the level of flexibility in terms of editing and creating content and integrating existing content sources. It is a great fit for the LDEO community.

In addition, the content management capabilities of the system allow for a sophisticated vetting system for the creation, vetting and publishing of new content.
