About GSP

GSP stands for "Giant Schnauzer Pedigrees". GSP is an international initiative to collect and preserve as many Giant Schnauzer pedigrees and data as possible, in order to give a good view of the breed and show developments in the breed, past and present, to allow Giant Schnauzer owners to discover the ancestry of their beloved pets, and to provide pedigree information.

GSP is a user-driven database site with some supervision and editing by GSP administrators and GSP crew members.

Anyone who has an Internet connection may freely browse the site and look at the information that has been collected and that is made available. However, to add, edit or remove information you must first be registered with GSP.

The principle of GSP is to give registered users the possibility of collaboratively building up an informative database on Giant Schnauzers. GSP has succeeded in this very well. Founded in 2011, Giant Schnauzer Pedigrees is well on its a way to becoming the web's largest site dedicated to Giant Schnauzer pedigrees with nearly 6,000 entries collected in only 1 month. This kind of large database is possible only with the help of users and Giant Schnauzer enthusiasts worldwide willingly and collaboratively sharing the information they have with GSP and each other.

Due to the fact that GSP is a user-driven database there is always the possibility that the database includes incorrect information. Moreover, the accessible, open nature of the database holds the potential for both vandalism and inaccuracy. However, the advantages of this kind of large database are significant and clearly outweigh the disadvantages.

It is our goal, with the help of active users and GSP admin's and GSP crew members who are monitoring contributions on a regular basis, to correct errors quickly. Over time the accuracy of this site is improving as it attracts more and more contributors. We encourage all registered users to help us maintain the high standards we have set for GSP by correcting information where needed and passing on information and pedigrees for the benefit of all users.

We have instituted a process of change-logs which will allow us to identify and follow up any time a member has modified entries on the site. If it turns out that someone has deliberately altered correct entries or in any way purposely sabotaged entries on the database by adding incorrect information this person will be excluded from the site.
