Entering a record

Viewing results: using the maps and filtering data

  • Each map has two accordion links above, which expand to give info. These are "Click/tap to get help on how to use the filter bar above the map" and "Click/tap to get help on how to use the map and the data grid". If these don't answer your question - please contact us

Get a species list for a polygon, or QDS

  • To get a list of one group, such as carnivores, go to View results > Select a species or group, and then scroll down to see the View all carnivores link. 
  • To get a list of all species in an area, use the Explore all records option. Then use the Create a filter option in the filter bar above the map. Click on the 'Where' option. You can then:
    • Zoom into your chosen area and use the polygon tool to draw a polygon around it.
    • Type a QDS code (use capital letters), monad or pentad code into the map reference box and change the drop-down to the correct grid system.
    • Search for records in places by typing in a name for example, Palmwag, into the search for site names box.
