Neotropical vegetation data: online access to georeferenced inventories, surveys and maps of Latin American vegetation

View mapped data

About the project

This website is designed to make published and unpublished inventory and vegetation survey data for Latin America readily accessible on a geographical basis. This will help researchers, conservation planners, developers and governmental organisations to gain access to location-specific information rapidly, informing decision-making and maximising the use of a vast body of data that until now has been largely inaccessible and whose existence is often little-known.

Simply click on the red on the map and a summary of the survey will appear, with links to the associated data. The data are held on a Google Fusion database that can be developed by multiple contributors.
