Submission + - Map of Life shows distribution of any species throughout the world-> 2 2

cylonlover writes: Ever wondered if a certain species of animal can be found where you live? The Map of Life website aims to answer this question. Built on a Google Maps platform, it lists virtually all of the vertebrate animals that can be found at any one point in the world. Map of Life is currently accessible in a debut version, and is the result of a Yale University-led collaboration between several institutions and organizations. Users can either select a species and then see where it occurs, or they can select a location and then get a listing of almost all the mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles that can be found at that location – freshwater fish data is currently limited to North America, but more features are in the works.
