Our global map of edibles is not the first of its kind, but it aspires to be the world's most comprehensive. While our users contribute locations of their own, we comb the internet for pre-existing knowledge, seeking to unite the efforts of foragers, foresters, and freegans everywhere. The imported datasets range from small neighborhood foraging maps to vast professionally-compiled tree inventories. This amounts to thousands of different types of edibles (most, but not all, plant species) across thousands of cities around the world. Beyond the cultivated and commonplace to the exotic flavors of foreign plants and long-forgotten native plants, foraging in your neighborhood is a journey through time and across cultures.

Nice, though the functionality is lacking in some areas. For example, it should be possible to select an item in the list view and then see that specific item highlighted on the map. I love the idea as I've kept a private fruit map for years, though I think iNaturalist has far more content at the mo…

Suggestion for the developers: When adding a new marker, you currently have to select the species and genus of the tree. Most people aren't going to know which of the 6 different types of Fig trees (or which of the 4 different cultivars of Loquat) they've found. For this scenario, there should be a …
