CCH1 Feature Development Completed


  Jepson eFlora

  1.  Create a new map dataset that links the eflora to the new CCH1
  2.  Redesign the Map Window

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


  1.  Hartman script re-coded and dot maps now use all georeferenced specimens in the new CCH1 
  2.  New CCH2 member databases added in March

  3.  —  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
     —  STNF - Shasta-Trinity National Forest Herbarium
     —  THRI - Herbarium of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks

  4.  Results page enhancement 

  5.  — restore ability to sort by first column (yellow & georef flags) 
     — Queries only show yellow flags in results if the box is checked on the search page
