The effort to create a coherent, usable and accessible website for the Wetlands of India began in the April 2005. At that time, the Wetlands of India website had static html pages only. Among the tasks necessary to successfully complete the website project were:

  • Creating the new website using opensource software
  • Organizing the content / creating a sitemap
  • Deciding upon a method for long-term content management
  • Implementation - creating the basic templates for use throughout the site
  • Testing the site for accessibility, usability, etc.
  • Migrating data from the old website to the new one

Dr. S.N.Prasad and involved staff members of SACON Deccan Regional Station, Hyderabad, led the effort. This site has been developed and hosted by Salim Ali Centre For Ornithology And Natural History (SACON). While the site has been designed and is maintained and managed by Santosh Gaikwad who also migrated all information from the old website, tested for multiple browser and platform compatibility issues, and performed extensive testing for W3C and accessibility standards.
The revamped website (shown below) was publicly launched in late August 2005. The website was created using the open source software such as Java, Mysql, DjVu plugin, Wordpress for wetlan blog, ALOV map etc. By the end of this process, the website was a complete success - visitors to the site had increased tenfold, and it became an essential resource that was also easy to maintain.
