EOO and AOO as used by the IUCN Red List are two different ways of looking at the geographic range of a species. Estimates can be made in a variety of ways, see the CATS tool developed at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Another way is to make use of the high resolution images on Google Earth where it is possible to 'draw' your species range based on your knowledge of an area or the habitat in which it occurs. One way to do this is as follows:
Had a few issues after the upgrade to Drupal 6, but the site is back up to where it was (thanks to scratchpad team).
Dabbled with Panels again, but decided (again) not to include them. Seemed to slow the website quite a bit and found I was hiding most of the panels anyway. So it is back to a simple page for each assessment indicating the rating (images from Wikipedia) and with pdf reports attached.
List of 1,500 legume species just added. I've included tribes to make it a bit easier to navigate. You can also use the search box at the top of the right sidebar. By clicking 'taxonomy' first it will search by taxonomy terms e.g. species lists.
A few updates to the scratchpad:
There are a number of new datasets making use of Google Earth/maps on the new King's College Goedata Portal:
Visualising land cover changes in this way could be extremely useful for rapid conservation assessments. In particular check out RALUCIAPA, Conservation-Eye and Terrascope.
Be warned - they were running very slow last time I checked.
