A question for the Atlas folk at BA but, I'm sure, of interest to many of us.
On what basis will the data from this Atlas be mapped or analysed? I thought I
heard, or saw, somewhere something about doing something on a 30 minute block
I ask this as I'm wondering how best to configure my Atlassing to be of
greatest value. On recent trips I have made the effort to get into previously
unatlassed blocks to fill some gaps. Wherever possible I try and do three 20
minute searches, ie an hours birding in a 10 minute block.
Now, I'm about to head up to Cunnamulla and will be staying at a site where I
completed quite a lot of Atlas sheets last year and I know others have also
been there and done the same. I have, hot of the press courtesy of the Atlas
folk, the coverage of that area as of June 2001. Sure enough the Cunnamulla
blocks are well covered but the 1 degree block immediately to the north
(Cunnamulla is in the 10 minute block 28 05S 145 45E) has a grand total of 13
Atlas sheets returned from only 6 10 minute blocks (ie 30 unatlassed 10 minute
blocks). There are an equivalent number of unatassed blocks in the 1 degree
block immediately to the north east of Cunnamulla.
My question is: am I better trying to do a few blocks well or try and get into
as many of these unatlassed blocks as possible? What is of the greatest value
to the Atlas?
