AntWeb-Google Earth Map


AntWeb- Google Earth Map

This is a nice example of the kind of thing that can be done when georeferenced specimen data are readily available. Need to think about doing this for iSpecies.

I've made a similar gadget for mapping the distribution of fish species.

It parses XML point data held by FishBase and plots the points using the Google Maps API. It works 90% of the time, but fails due to Western characters appearing in FishBase XML described as UTF-8.

I need to fix it. It's at Fish Mapper.

Fish Mapper, AntWeb and iSpecies get a mention in The Scientist magazine's blog today in a post titled "Why Google is Good for Science". There's also a post on the subject in the blog on the members' area of Practical Fishkeeping's website.

These mashups are indeed surprisingly easy to implement. I have used Google Map and Google Earth to permit mapping of North American spiders (http://canadianarachnology.webhop.net). I also found some div overlay javascipting to permit one to "draw" a box on a Google Map and generate a spider species list. The corner coordinates are used as the query strings. A very interesting cgi application called MapServer (http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/provides far more capabilities than does Google. For instance, ArcView shapefiles & layers can be re-projected on-the-fly. Berkeley Mapper makes use of MapServer as have I in the Nearctic Spider Database.

Matt,

It would be nice if you could provide the community with the source code (PHP?) for your FishMapper application...

Because if it is not source, it is not code! :-)

Cheers,
