As we described earlier in the year, alongside our Access Structures/WebCSD system we launched a WebCSD Ideas voting page where you can log in and identify which features you’d most like to see added or improved in the interface. We're continuing to prioritise improvements to WebCSD directly driven by your input and feedback in this voting page and in person when we meet you at events. We launched the first of these directly user-driven improvements (full screen 3D viewer) earlier in 2018 and two more are now available in WebCSD (formula searching and structure search templates).
The recent August update to the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) brought the total number of entries in the database to over 950,000, meaning the next big milestone will be 1 million. This is a huge achievement of the crystallographic community, and in the months leading up to this milestone we’ll be demonstrating the value that can be gained from this crystal data and looking to what can be accomplished in the future.
