PedigreePoint (PedPoint) is a web based pedigree report generator. Use PedigreePoint software to put your database on the web so others can search and display pedigrees and other reports pertaining to an entry. Typically you would use a desktop application to maintain your pedigree database then, when you're ready, publish any updates to the MySQL database used by PedPoint so users of your web site can see it. A sample of the pedigree view is shown below. It shows how PedPoint can disply photos and also what we call marks which are the solid blocks of color in some of the cells. These can be used to indicate that an entry has for example some genetic defect. You can find out more about Marks here.
PedigreePoint is produced by Wild Systems - check out our main web site www.breedmate.com .
PedigreePoint installs on a website and is written in PHP. It connects to a MySQL relational database which is usually located on the same server as the website.
PedigreePoint is free of charge for private non-commercial use. Its written in PHP V7.3 and you get the source code so it can be easily adapted to individual needs such as displaying different fields or modifying or creating new reports. Most of the customisations that you would make can be done by editing one file - pp_config.php.
If you would like to see how it works then just - Search a database! On the search page simply enter a search string and click on the Search button. This will return a matching list of names in the database. Clicking on a report such as pedigree or breeding next to a name will display the report for that entry. For examples of what is possible with PedigreePoint technology see this list of sites using PedigreePoint.
