A Geographic Flowering Calendar Using Dynamic Data from the World Wide Web


The objective of this research is to systemise knowledge about floral resource availability from a number of underlying datasets, and present this information to beekeepers through a web mapping portal. Beekeepers, supported by such information equally well at home or in the field, will profit from making better informed planning decisions, moving less, and with less risk.
