Platform component: [Platform components can take the form of software applications (desktop or web-based) for human users or (web) services. A service may provide data (a data service), some kind of transformation (a transformation service), validation of data (validation service), or other data processing" (taken from the "platform vision](http://cybertaxonomy.eu/blog/platform/))
Platform Components Overview¶
To get an idea of what the platform consists we are working towards a simple diagram that shows central components and a bundle of components that can be used for collaborative taxonomic work.
For a richer textual description of the planned components please read the platform design draft.
