Bioblitz Map Information

The map below is an interactive map of the Bioblitz study areas. Zoom in and out using the + and - buttons at the bottom or your middle mouse button if you have one.  Open the menu by clicking/tapping on the box next to the map title. Click on an object on the map, or a name in the menu to see additional information about that location. Note, that as long as you have an internet connection, this map will work fine. If you lose connectivity, the map will stop working. If you are going into the bush on a 4x4 track you might want to download a kmz file and load this file into a GPS application on your mobile device. See below the map for information on how to set this up in Google Earth on your phone.
