Plant Distribution Mapper

The Plant Distribution Mapper plots known locations of plants on a map of South Australia from herbarium collections held by the State Herbarium of South Australia. To plot herbarium specimens from all Australian herbaria on a map of Australia see Australia's Virtual Herbarium.
An alternative method of mapping SA herbarium specimens is through the Google Maps trial.
