Calflora Smartphone Plant Reporting App

The California Flora project has a neat app to report observations of any of their species in California. According to their website: This application makes it easy for you to report the species name, date, and location of over 10,000 California native and non-native plant taxa. You can also add a photograph to a report, and share it with others later to confirm identification. Your reports are transmitted wirelessly to the Calflora database, where you can edit them and see them on a map. To read more about it CLICK HERE. The Bay Area Early Detection Network uses it to map invasive plants.  Below is a 9 minute video of how that works. The app demonstration starts at minute 2:15. Would it be useful to have something like this for the New York Atlas?
