Data collection

We would like to add new collections of trees to the database. Data can be accepted in a number of formats and converted to the internal representation when loaded but if collecting new data, these notes on the data requirements and format will be helpful.


Editing of trees, species and sites requires registration which at present is by invitation. Email to register as an editor.
