The current status is: Up and running, comment system with geolocated comments is in the pipeline. Some zoom-level issues on OpenLayers maps.


  • media plan (outreach) (liz)
  • printed edition (see Posters project)
  • search function
  • “embed”
  • Reach out to people involved in mapping, for "field notes" and those who may be able to use the data.
