    • 1. Grasses Online -Scratchpads for Poaceae Bryan Simon, Queensland Herbarium
    • 2. Scratchpads A flexible online resource for biodiversity hosted by Natural History Museum, London. In the first year (2007) 466 people from more than 30 countries registered for Scratchpads. In Aug 2011 there were 3466 active users in more than 60 countries. 363,000 pages of content since March 2007. Currently 314 Scratchpad sites, one of which is GrassWorld and another is AusGrass2.

    • 66. Scratchpad2 Line wrap problem fixed Maps with colour separation (useful for weed distribution) Integrated mapping tools - dynamically display point locality data, regional data and shape files as overlays on a Google Map Over 2012 a number of additional enhancements are planned. These include: Integrated Single Sign On (SSO), (with author-ID) Proper Globally Unique Identifiers beyond URL’s Scratchpad site registry with metadata and visualisations concerning content in all the Scratchpads and author level metrics on content Rebuild of http://Scratchpads.eu, focusing on content within sites rather than the Scratchpad infrastructure Identification key building and species database visualisations derived from character data in the matrix editor Centralised services on controlled vocabularies Phylogenetic analytical services Improved training functionality
    • 67.
