The objective of the WebGR project is to develop a set of web services to support the organisation and data analysis of calibration workshops, both for age and maturity information, implemented in a coherent tool installable as a website. The website consists of a repository of images, a set of web forms to run a calibration exercise online, a reporting module with the most common statistical analysis and import/export modules to manage images and results. The software has a creative commons license (Open Source) to promote transparency, technology transfer and peer review; and will allow the scientific community to get involved in further developments, like linkage to statistical analysis engines, or any other specific features. The usage of WebGR to carry out calibration workshops will promote the application of sound statistical analysis to design the experiment and compute workshop results. The results are extracted in a standard format that can be easily sent to scientists doing assessments. Keywords: WebGR, calibration workshops, age, maturity
