Recording data and capturing pictures of personal plant collections is a common passion among enthusiasts specializing in one plant family or one geographic region.  Software to help organize these collections provide the user with tools to properly name, label, and record data.  Good examples of this type of software allow for importing/exporting so that club members and fellow associates can share their collections.  Publishing collections in HTML format is another popular theme.
