Post Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) Map & Others
The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) is an international open data infrastructure, funded by governments (link). It allows anyone, anywhere to access data about all types of life on Earth, shared across national boundaries via the Internet. Their database of locations is sourced from academic researchers, museums and universities and covers a wide range of dates including historical data from the 1800's.

The GBIF has their own map here (link). It has a timeline slider along with the more standard map features.

The 'DISCOVER LIFE' site (link) also has a map (link) of BSF sightings based on the GBIF data. Their map locations link back to the individual 'GBIF' database entries.

These are good resources to see if BSF are in your area and a compliment to our own citizen science effort the Black Soldier Fly Mapping Project (link).

Thanks Aussiemoo. The iNaturalist.org map appears to be a citizen science project where data is submitted by the general public. Similar to our own map but covering all species. http://www.inaturalist.org/pages/about
