    Bioblitz data

    What's a Bioblitz?

    Bioblitzes are 24-hour species inventories conducted by scientists and the local community.
    Most of NatureMapping bioblitzes are conducted to assess predicted species lists/maps and to develop baseline inventories for landowners.

    NatureMapping has been involved in bioblitzes since 2005. Its main role is to provide provide the training for participants on the use of NatureTracker, provide the equipment, coordinate the logistics of taxonomic team deployment, and run the technology station at Science Central. Data are displayed on a large screen as teams return from the field. After the bioblitz, reports are generated for the landowner and maps are displayed on the NatureMapping website.
