     —  Y - Yale University Herbarium
    *Loaded in the orginal CCH1 pre-2018 as 'SEINET' records

CCH1 Feature Development Completed


  Jepson eFlora & ICPN

  1.  County distribution maps from the ICPN now read live from the current version of CCH1
  2.  Updating Yellow Flags on eflora maps
  3.  Create a new map dataset that links the eflora to the new CCH1
  4.  Redesign the Map Window

  5.  — Redesign and optimize the map icons to eliminate lag on loading
     — Use optimized map icons that allow the retirement of the clustering map


  1.  Downloading Search Results in Excel-compatible CSV text format has been re-developed
  2.  The CCH1 database has been moved to Maria DB
  3.  Hartman script re-coded and dot maps now use all georeferenced specimens in the new CCH1 
  4.  New CCH2 member databases added in 2022

  5.  —  ELH - BLM, Eagle Lake Field Office Herbarium
     —  GDRC - Green Diamond Resource Co.
     —  KNFY - Klamath National Forest Herbarium
     —  LVNP - Lassen Volcanic National Park
     —  NCC - Sonoma State University Herbarium
     —  PPWD - Pepperwood Preserve
     —  PUA - Pacific Union College Hebarium
     —  SSRD - Salmon/Scott Ranger District, USFS
