LOL... I was just telling Alec that I need to get a wall map out and put colored pins on it to specify what species is found there. I like your idea better! :wink:

Actually, I think this map can be made using some sort of scripting. There are location maps for people to map their location around the world, one should be able to do it with fish. I just need to figure out what script to use and how to create a pop-up image for the fish at that location. I have a map we can use. But it will take some time to script it all out. It would be nice to make it editable by everyone.

Yes Michelle. I made on it directly in Google map. It were damage, that I was must compose all only from blurred fragments. Too few informations I had with GPS co-ordinates. Unfortunately scalares aren´t fishes with good commercial rating and they, who can make some around it in Brasilia haven´t interests with this angels.
If we gain information from some Brasilian merchandiser, that his fishes from this export may be from Xingu. It´s only information, what we have and also we didn´t know, if is this information responsible ..... After it I could gave dart only on some place in Xingu and must go further.
This map were work for two last years, what I composed from all rips of informations what I got everywhere.
But... in January I took new notebook and didn´t take all Google Earth datas into new machine. I lost every it and have only my printscreen pictures from it. Now I must begine again after it. For it there isn´t two new known forms - Stanta Isabela and Sao Gabriel... :?

For possibilities with pictures here in forum I was must compressed it too much, so every signs are small and fuzzy.

Jan

The big problem with locations is getting reliable information as to where angelfish were really caught.
Sometimes fish with a given 'look' tend to get lumped in with a certain name, like "peruvians' or from this or that river, but unless someone like Heiko was to take pics on the spot and nominate the location, I would not be inclined to trust the place names on new arrivals too much.
