‘Atlas of Florida Plants’ from Institute for Systematic Botany, @USouthFlorida, and USF Water Institute | #USF #botany
The ISB Atlas of Florida Plants is an incredible resource! Even if you’re not from Florida or have ever visited there – but you like plants! – you’re about to spend some time clicking through over 170k digitized specimens, comprised from 3,295 native and 1,495 non-native species. The species are further broken down by County, seen in the map screenshot above – just click a county outline and find all the plant species in that county that have been registered. What a great archive!
This project is itself a member of the “family of PlantAtlas.org websites” — there are other states and plants to enjoy:
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
