The apiary map organises beekeepers and their apiaries on a world map. The purpose is simply to make it easy to see where your fellow beekeepers are and what bee subspecies they have. The map started out in Europe and has been growing ever since - it is now covering many apiaries all over the world.
Pan around and use the zoom control. Use the map controls to find the area you are interested in. Zoom with a double-click! Click on the hive symbols on the map to see information about that apiary. A yellow circle with a 2 km radius is shown to represent the foraging area of the bees.
When you are a beekeeper you can establish your presence on this map!
