The George Forrest Gazetteer of North West Yunnan, China.
The Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh holds the largest archive of the plant hunter George Forrest, who explored Yunnan between 1904 and 1932. However, the archive remains relatively inaccessible. The aims of this project are to digitally capture and mobilise Forrest’s heritage data by synthesizing The George Forrest Gazetteer of north west Yunnan - a cross-referencing, fully searchable web-based database. Digital capture, data extraction and input onto the database is underway, and below is screen-shot of the front page of the website.
