  2. The Big Dream 2

  3. The Big Dream T o use maps 2

  4. The Big Dream T o use maps to make better

    maps 2
  5. The Big Dream T o use maps to make better

    maps of where species ACTUALLY are. 2
  6. The Big Dream Make it easy for experts to: Edit

    maps that are wrong. Find data that has been entered incorrectly. Do biodiversity analyses. 3
  7. What’s important Any taxon. Available data. My data. Share it.

    4
  8. Integration Will support all kinds of maps: Expert ranges. Ecoregion

    checklists. Protected area checklists. Species occurrences and uncertainties. Environmental data. 5

  26. Add my map: species ranges based on where they actually

    are. Add my own data layers: Overlay the volcanic plume. Share it: Argentinian and US governments, now. Satellite imagery by MODIS/Aqua: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=50862 21
