What’s inside? Plant Lists Plus has 3 main types of information:

1) Plant lists -- a collection of plants dictionary entries and GPS locations
2) Plant dictionary -- holds descriptive information about the plant.
3) Location markers -- holds GPS location with location and observation information

Plant Dictionary

The plant dictionary holds detail information about plants. Plant lists and markers both refer to entries in the plant dictionary. For a plant to added to a plant list or marker, it first must exist in the plant dictionary. Because plant dictionary information is held in a central location, changes to the plant information, like adding a common name, are seen wherever the plant is used throughout the app.

When plant lists are shared, plant dictionary entries accompany the plant list. Sharing plant lists is a fast way to build up your plant dictionary. Throughout the app when plant names are referenced, links to Google Images and Wikipedia are displayed.

Location Markers

Markers contain GPS location, location and observation information. A marker can also be a land feature such as a trail head, parking lot or navigational waypoint. Plant markers have data fields to store plant population data. For example: 5 plants in a 10 ft circle, or hundreds in a field north of the road.

Markers have a "Public" and a "Private" attribute. When you have a marker that you do not want to share, you can set this attribute to "Private" and where it can be excluded from sharing and printing.

When internet connectivity is available, markers can be sent to map applications where you can start navigation to guide you to that location.

Plant Lists

Plant lists contain both plants and markers. When displaying the list of plants, tapping marker icon at the top right of the screen switches to the list of markers. Tapping the flower icon returns to the list of plants. Sharing a plant list is a way for backup a plant list and later importing the list.

Plant lists can be combined allowing the creation of smaller plant lists and later combining them into larger collections. For example, several people can be creating and collecting plant list information in the field. Later, all lists can be shared and combined for a more complete plant list.

Sharing and Importing

Using Plant Lists Plus, plant lists can be create by importing a CSV file allowing plant lists to be created on a computer using spreadsheet apps.

A specialized CSV import process is provided for users of SEINet. SEINet is a web-based plant information database containing millions of plant entries. Using SEINet, you can build plant lists by location name or by drawing a polygon on a map.

Plant lists and markers can be exported to a PDF file for printing. Three types of PDF reports are provided. Markers can be exported to a GPX or KML file as input to navigation software.
