Welcome to the Galapagos Islands Database!

THIS IS A TEST VERSION

This database comprises a collection of statistics and information about the Galapagos Islands. Data on all the major islands and most minor islands will be in the completed database, with about 30 island parameters, including physical and geographical characteristics, biological information and internet and scientific resources.

Database statistics (Mar 12, 2006)
Number of islands in database: 12 (twelve largest islands)
Number of parameters in database: 21

Use this page to select the data you want on the different islands. Results are reported on a separate page after you click the "submit" button. You can select any combination of islands and parameters such as size for all or some of the islands or all parameters for one or two islands. However, you must select from both the islands and data lists.

If you encounter problems with the database, please contact Jungle Photos and let us know of the problem. Please be specific regarding the problem, and send us the error message if possible. (This will help with trouble-shooting.) Please contact us to let us know if you find the database useful or if you have ideas for improvements or additional features (such as more variables or parameters.)
