Philosophy

The A.P.E.S project is a multi partner initiative that relies on many people to work. We need people to both contribute and use data from the database, and the initiative will only be a success if everyone co-operates and shares their data with one another. We are here simply as a platform to enable data sharing and make this valuable information public, and we do not own the data nor have any copyright over it. Every dataset is owned by the person who collected and shared it, and their agreement should always be sought when using data. So please use A.P.E.S to assist you, and assist A.P.E.S by contributing data!
