Mapping plants using the CARMA API

The API provides users with a way to download raw data from the CARMA database. This might sound interesting to a developer, but the casual surfer might not see why we’re so excited about this.

map-states.gifWell, all this API data can be placed into other tools, and mixed with other (non-CARMA) data. It can be passed into things like Google maps to give the data more visual appeal. Since most plants have a latitude and longitude, this example (source) shows how to stick plants on a map. NOTE: a Google Maps API key is needed to host this example on your own server.

If you have any ideas of how to use the API, don’t hesitate to let us know!
