This toolkit facilitates the installation, maintenance and monitor of Living Atlases portals


How?

With an user friendly interface we put all these parts together in an up-to-date environment to perform the common installation & maintenance tasks of a LA portal.


This LA toolkit is like a big assistant of the different phases and tasks of the deployment and maintenance of a LA portal
