“One of the advantages of GIS is that we can see whole countries in a single view. Traditional maps were based on people spending months, if not years, trekking backwards and forwards through the forest, only seeing a very small part of it. GIS provides a deep picture, showing everything from the abiotic things through groups of different organisms through groups of different communities.”—David Sutton, Palynologist and Collection Manager, Natural History Museum, London gathering Gathering
