Columbia University selected Black Hammer to develop the new Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory website ( as a resource for the public, scientists, and students of the University.

Black Hammer created a web 2.0 solution that completely updated the LDEO web presence, and was a great fit for the LDEO community. The site was developed in Drupal, the open source web development and content management system.

The new LDEO website 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 content management capabilities of Drupal allow for a sophisticated workflow for the creation, vetting and publishing of new content, as well as a great deal of flexibility in terms of editing and integrating existing content sources.
