Probably not, but I'll take a closer look.

Suppose a particular native plant grows in an area roughly 
corresponding to a few zip codes. Suppose you wish to display a 
map with said area overlaid or highlighted on a web page.

When you are dealing with thousands of plants, something dynamic 
is needed. If something new is understood/discovered about the 
plant one might also change its boundaries.

Thank you for getting back to me.
