Fungi mapping with google :)
    #11336655 - 10/28/09 08:21 AM (8 years, 23 days ago)

I know that this idea was suggested before, but not with google maps ..the idea is that when you find a certain mushroom/fungus species, you put a placemark at the area you found it, and include some information/pictures on the species you found.

The whole map is publicly editable so anyone would be able to add their finds. Eventually if enough mycologists add their finds to the map, there will be a comprehensive database of information regarding different species of mushrooms and for instance, a specific genus location could be mapped very easily.

Note this idea is not necessarily supposed to be for the purpose of hunting psilocybes and the like, and I'd actually recommend with such species not giving the exact spot rather just a radius or something.

Anyways I started one, here, http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=106227261964813671637.000476fd8ffdd73367085

If you want to be a part of it just log into google and document some of your finds :smile: This'd be a worldwide project so yeah anyone's able to. Hopefully the project will take off well, and some cool conclusions drawn - but if not all well it doesn't hurt to try.

Nice idea, but do you really think people would want to tell everybody where they found their's active shrooms?!

I didn't say active shrooms

This is for all mushrooms and fungi :smile:

In fact I stated that if people are going to add active shrooms 'not' to add the precise location on those, for that very reason.

IMHO, great concept...

but, kinda silly to try and track something that we know to be the major constituent of every major forest floor & bedding in one species or another (or hundreds or species'), let alone to draw conclusions from it >.>
