As you may have noticed, I have been putting up
some information derived from the COG database onto the chatline. As part
of exploring ways to get present the COG data to members, I have been
looking at the idea of a one page visual (ie no tables of data, just maps and
graphs) summary for a species. The link below should take you to a document
illustrating the idea for the Australasian Grebe. It includes the type of
maps and tables included in the ACT Atlas plus some other presentations. The
data presented is derived from the COG database but has not been quality
checked and does not include all 2011 records.
At this stage I am looking for some feedback on the
idea of a one page visual summary and the other information I have been sending
out. Is this information of interest or is it just clogging up the
Please note that this is an exploration of ideas
and that I have no immediate plans to produce this type of output for other
species. However, if there is discussion of a particular species on the
chatline, and I have time, I might produce a similar output if people think it
PS this is the first time I have used this approach
to sebd out a document which is too big to send directly to the
chatline, so please let me know if the link does not work or you have
other issues with this approach.
If you zoom in to the document, please note that it
may take a few moments for the maps and tables to look clear.
