Nature Spotting with Google Maps

Project Noah

Noah is a tool that nature lovers can use to explore and document local wildlife. The tool is available as a handy iPhone app that allows users to photograph interesting organisms and share them on Noah.

The Noah website features a Google Map displaying the locations of submitted wildlife. It is possible to refine the wildlife shown on the map by selecting from the menu above the map. For example, it is possible to view just mammals, plants or birds on the map at one time.

If you click on one of the leaf shaped map markers you can view the submitted photograph. If you click on the photograph you can view on the details submitted by the Noah user.
