Future Directions

Once a sufficiently large number of submissions have been received, tools will be implemented in Spider WebWatch to help you submit, search for and re-use information. A few of these are as follows:

  • Educational & interactive lesson plans for all age groups (currently under development)
  • GoogleTM Map Search (e.g. like that found in The Nearctic Spider Database)
  • Compact, downloadable field guides
  • Submission via mobile phone (pending favorable survey result below)
  • Simple web services to enable remote application development

If you have an idea or suggestion, please do not hesitate to contact:
