This is a static, typical example map of the Wonder Garden area. This is the project prototype area. It is small but the plants and animals are very diverse. As you can see from the map it is a fenced area with street access. The yellow markers show the boundary corners of the property line. The purple markers show the locations of the observations of the plants and animals as of this 02-19-21. This image is extracted from the Epicollect5 site where it is dynamically updated as observations are acquired. 

Because the Wonder Garden has been so helpful in developing the survey and data collection process I have expanded the exploration area to additional selected sites still in SW Florida . The Everglades Wonder Garden Epicollect sdata base has been absorbed into the Epicollect Everglades Ark data base.

# 19, GPS=26.344153, -81.779162, 02192021 is the reference GSGS survey marker

This is a screen shot showing the format of the data when uploaded from the Epicollect database and loaded into an Excel spread sheet. The data can then be manipulated in any number of ways to extract information for statistical analysis.

The chart seen below shows the 1800 sq km of South Western Florida. Items indicated in red are small preserves not found on all maps. It demonstrates the vast area of interest with diverse geologic features. I encourage all visitors and residents to consider going to these sites which are open to the public. They are great for looking at the plants and animals while hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, snorkeling and diving or just sitting on a bench. Bring your lunch, camera and binoculars. Show us what you found and describe your observations. If you see something of special interest let us know. If you wish to participate as a citizen scientist please see the Epicollect site and ask to be a collector.
