Mapping Pond Life on Google Maps

South Santee Aquaculture
As you all know, we are fond of ponds and pond life. Today, I ran across something very interesting on Google Maps Mania- Pond Life Mapped!

The Natural History Museum in the UK asked the public to carry out water surveys in their neighbourhood. The idea behind the crowd-sourced survey was to help scientists learn more about how polluted our lakes and ponds actually are.
The Pond Health Score Map shows the location of the healthiest and least healthy ponds. Every survey has been given a health score depending on the invertebrates found. This map shows the pond health scores of the surveys submitted.

The Water Clarity Map shows where the clearest waters been found around the UK.
