Teachable Moment: Crowdsourced data gathering through a shared visualization engine provides one of the most elegant and powerful ways I've ever seen to track and underscore the importance of biodiversity.



By bringing together all types of information about species distributions, providing model-based integration, and providing a system for users to build upon our knowledge, the Map of Life project hopes to support our community in understanding and saving the world's biodiversity. The result will ultimately be a knowledge-base and platform for species distribution map development, along with a set of tools for querying, accessing, downloading and summarizing them.
