ABSTRACT

Botanical information system BotanGIS is an information system about plants in Botanical Garden and Collection conservatories Flora. One step of creation of information system was the creation of detail plans of the area. Information was collected by terrain measuring of building parts. The plans were created in GIS software. Next step was punctual measuring and localization of plants.
Several plans in different scales were required for practical utilization of botanical information system BotanGIS. There were produced both paper plans and digital plans for web application. The main stage was a good suggestion of map key for plant and building parts. Plants are identified by numerical labels. Subsequently, the placing of a large amount of numerical labels was cartographical challenge. The plans were used by the garden administrator, university students of botany and public visitors. All users have different demands to the contents of the map. All requirements have been respected by cartographers, authors of plans to create understandable and usable plans. The unifying of the paper plans and digital plans in the map key was a necessity.
As a result, the orientation plan of all area was created. Each of the four conservatories (palm, tropical, subtropical and cactus conservatories) has own plan of plants. The Botanical Garden has a plan with trees and detail plan with herbs. Finally, the plans were used for large information posters at the entrances.
