    Bart C. commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    Can anybody enlighten me about the big picture in creating Map of Life? Apparently supported by eol (see for instance http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2012-05/new-map-life-see-where-everything-lives-earth-google-maps). The same concept of plotting data on google maps (or similar) already exists for about 5 years (actually for bird sightings within The Netherlands they already use this for about 10 years now). Is Map of Life the project that will join all data they propose (museums, local checklists and research institutions, published studies and global groups like the World Wildlife Fund) +GBIF, and verified data from Inaturalist, observado.org, project noah, Ispot, etc.? Please tell me this initiative is going to actively seek collaboration with above and other organizations to put everything together. Or is this just going to be one in a dozen that thinks that everybody with data to share will be swarming to them because they have the ‘unique’ concept, but end up with just some little part of the data sources? If it is the last case, please pull back your resources. More competition is a waste of time. Real efforts to bring everything together would be so much powerful. Why can’t those museums, research institutions and WWF join and extend something that already exists, like Inaturalist as it is already a partner of EOL? I am used to observado.org by the way and I am not planning to do effort to import and share this with Inaturalist or any other organization, except maybe some pictures via Flickr for EOL ;).

    I think having the maps available on the overview page is a great idea, and the ranking by rating makes good sense. Another good improvement.

    Cyndy Parr commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Tanya Higgins: Not yet. The map thumbnail that shows up in the Overview tab will be the one with the highest rating from the Maps tab (so be sure to rate maps everyone!). Right now, the only place the iNaturalist maps show up is on a special tab on collections, for example Birds in North American cities

    @Cyndy Parr: Sadly, the organisms I've been collecting as of late haven't had much information associated, but I think the maps are an excellent idea. Do they work with the new observation features?

    Anybody here notice we now have maps on the overview tab? What do you think?

    @Jennifer Hammock: Some of the Wiki entries do have brief sections on captive care, and I certainly wouldn't recommend adding anything terribly detailed, but I think it might be a nice blank to fill in. I have started a collection of species kept as exotic pets and will be doing what I can to fill in information (sooooo many of them are completely blank), just want to make sure the information I provide is worthy. :)

    @Bart C.: We desperately need to refresh our content from BOLD but they are not responding and so far the process is manual. I will copy your comment here: http://eol.org/collections/26028/newsfeed so that they will see that users are asking.

    Jennifer Hammock commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Tanya Higgins: Hi, Tanya! We certainly don't have much of that kind of information- it hasn't been our emphasis so far. I think Captive care info could go comfortably in the Notes chapter. (You can add a subtitle to any text object, to clarify the topic.) Thoughts on this, anyone from the zoo, aquarist or horticultural communities?

    Tanya Higgins commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    Would it be appropriate to add a "Captive Care" section to those species often kept as exotic pets? Also, would it be appropriate to list the various "morphs" obtained through captive breeding for reptiles like ball pythons and leopard geckos? If so, how might that best be done?

    Katja Schulz commented on "EOL Discussion Group":

    @Gonçalo Themudo: We've got lots of pages for hybrids in plants, and a few in animals, e.g., Anas platyrhynchos x Cairina moschata, Samia cynthia ricini x Bombyx mori, Ateles paniscus x Ateles fusciceps. Let me know if you want me to create a T. marmoratus x T. cristatus page, so you can move the image there. It would take a couple of days to show up on EOL. Once it is up, you could untrust the Triturus blasii association and add the association with the new Ateles paniscus x Ateles fusciceps page.
