Map-based data retrieval provides easy and intuitive access to PGR information. The process is vital for developing mobile apps. Computational algorithms for map based applications in PGR were developed and were implemented as an interactive application called “PGR Map”.
PGR Map application aims to provide map based interface to obtain information on collection and conservation of crop species that are part of the Indian National Genebank holdings. The user friendly interface provides three search options viz.
1. “What’s around me” maps the current location of the users device and reverts with the details of the accessions collected from that location in India.
2. “Search the map ” retrieves details of accessions collected from a location in India on a simple click or tap on the map.
3. “Search for species”
