16000 western North American Herbarium Specimen Records - DWTaylor

I have posted a tabulation of 16,000 of my 21,000 vascular plant herbarium specimen records on Google Fusion. Search on 16000 western North American Herbarium Specimen and DWTaylor to pull up the dataset. There are a few records that are mapping screwy. About 1,000 records are of sufficiently poor quality for label information that they are as yet not georeferenced. For about half of these records, a known accession number is given. A sizable number of accessions at DAV are not yet posted on the Consortium of California Herbaria database.

An approximate tabulation by location is:
Alaska 19
Alberta 18
Arizona 58
Baja California Norte 142
Baja California Sur 93
British Columbia 64
California 12,845
Colorado 445
Hawaii 3
Idaho 318
Montana 55
Nevada 443
New Mexico 186
Oregon 830
Texas 49
Utah 52
Washington 179
