README for DwC_Views

DwC_Views provides implementation of viewers for Darwin Core records. The implementation is structured as two major components: the gateway, and the browser.

The gateway is a Django application that acts as a proxy and cache for resources that expose Darwin Core records. It supports a simple service interface for retrieving records and exposes them as JSON objects that can be rendered by JavaScript in the web browser. The API is described under /docs.

The browser is a set of JavaScript and HTML that enables viewing of record lists and individual records, as well as other metadata retrieved from the gateway.
