We used the summer break and updated the data portal. We briefly present the most important changes here.

Start page

The most noticeable innovation is certainly the new start page . The revised design with the categories “Featured Collections”, “Stories & Sounds” and “From our Blog” provides more clarity and a structured overview.

Overview pages for collections

The section “Featured Collections” offers a quick introduction to particularly interesting or new collections. For each collection there is now an overview page , which briefly introduces the collection and presents the highlights of the collection. Not all texts have been written yet, but we are working on it.

Audio player

We are particularly proud of the category “Stories & Sounds”. Actually we only wanted to develop a small audio player to play the contributions to the hackathon “Your Ocean Sound” . In the end, however, the feature became much bigger than expected. But it was worth it: Listen to the podcasts "Beats & Bones" and "Süßes oder Saurier" .

Detail view

The detail view has also received a small design update. The information on the media properties, the legal status, etc. is now presented more clearly.
