Mediawiki is a platform that is great for storing information. I was able to work with the great team over at Adenearth Works for The Plant Encyclopedia. We used Mediawiki to develop the worlds largest database of plants.
Some of the work performed on this site included a custom Mediawiki theme with a front page search feature. The Search Functionality allowed the user to automatically search the database using an autocomplete style query.
Other work included utilizing Semantic Mediawiki to create standardized forms for Page Creation. I was able to direct the company to the wonderful folks over at SMW to create some custom plugins as well.
