Biodiversity Heritage Library has been successful in detecting scientific names in biodiversity literature enabling linkages to external infrastructures such as GBIF.org of Global Biodiversity Information Facility. The very same pages contain geographical information, varying from names of the regions covered by a flora to the detailed locality information for a single specimen together with the sampling information. Beginning at TDWG 2014, BHL and GBIF have continued to explore the opportunities to expand the range of BHL services to deliver organism names and associated location information together. The state of this exploration is presented to TDWG 2016 to for discussion.
