Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is propagating one million native orchids for restoration into South Floridas urban landscapes. This project engages the public, particularly school children, to plant the orchid seedlings in trees to beautify urban spaces and restore orchid ecosystems, e.g. orchids, their pollinators, predators, and symbionts. To facilitate the documentation and tracking of the orchids after they are planted, Florida International University GIS Center teamed up with scientists from FIU Department of Biology and Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and developed this web and mobile GIS application. The Tracking One Million Orchid app. Intends to facilitate documentation of orchids and its ecosystems with photographs by their locations, and visualization of the distribution of all planted orchids, and track the status of their growth. This project is funded by the City of Coral Gables, Office of City Clerk.
