|www.eakringbirds.com and the National Biodiversity Network|
|As the direct result of
our contributing almost 53,000 invertebrate records to
the NBN Atlas, through the Nottingham Biological and
Geological Records Centre at Wollaton Hall, we were
invited to become members of the National Biodiversity
Network in June 2018.
As the driving force of eakringbirds.com has gradually become directed at creating and promoting a much greater awareness of the county's invertebrate fauna, and to provide the county's naturalists with a useful internet resource, we of course jumped at the chance.
the NBN Atlas
The NBN Atlas is innivotive because the combination of the multiple sources of information about UK species and habitats, and the ability to interrogate, combine and analyse these date in a single location, has not been done before on this scale. It aims to facilitate learning about and understanding the UK's wildlife.
The NBN Atlas is the successor to the NBN Gateway. It has much more advanced functionality than the NBN Gateway and is more intuitive to use. The NBN Atlas, uniquely, allows users to interrogate species records, habitat, climate and soil information, geographical boundaries and to use extremely powerful mapping tools through a single portal. It is also simple to interrogate your own biological records and habitat information, either in isolation or combined with additional information from the online database, as well as downloading and exporting maps and reports or summaries for your own use.
