SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITY AND AUTHORITY:
TIMETABLE FOR ACCOMPLISHING SPECIFIC TASKS:
The Encyclopedia contained 32,000 files in January and had to be totally restructured because it was not known that the platform on which it had been placed had a 32,000 file limit. This restructuring costs us 7 months of hard work but is practically complete. It is expected that at our present rate of contribution the available historic data will be uploaded by the end of 2012 or sooner.
Iris Encyclopedia Mission Statement
The mission of the Iris Encyclopedia is to provide freely to the world a comprehensive, illustrative, information resource on the Genus Iris, its species and cultivars. It attempts to make identification or verification possible with a large collection of images tied to the official descriptions. It hopes to make botanical and horticultural knowledge available in an understandable way and to unite the botanical and horticultural knowledge bases and by doing so help The American Iris Society disseminate correct Iris information.
