NBN Exchage Addin  (All versions)


The NBN Exchange Addin for Recorder 6 exports records in the NBN Exchange Format allowing submission of datasets to the NBN Atlas. The export creates two files - a tab-delimited text file containing the records in the NBN Exchange Format and an XML file containing some metadata information.


These are combined into a single .zip file for submission to NBN. For more information please refer to 'Using the NBN Exchange addin.doc' supplied with this download. This latest version was updated on 18 December 2012 .


If you wish to submit data to the Atlas  team an additional metadata information form is required. Please contact the NBN Technical Liaison Officers (Tel: 01733 866858; email ) for further information and guidance.


Load the version appropriate to your R6 version. Load only one version. Remove older version before upgrading  to new version.

 


Observation Extra Info. Button


Adds a new button to the bottom of the observation window. When clicked this provides additional information on the selected line.

Phenology Addin


Displays a Phenology histogram for a taxon. After installation, a new option "Phenology" appears in the Reports menu.

When you select this option, a window will open showing a blank chart. You generate a histogram by dragging the name of a taxon onto the chart from the Taxon dictionary browser or from a taxon occurrence (from the observation window). A histogram will be generated showing the number of records of that taxa falling in each week of (any) year. Note that, if you drag the name of a taxon group (e.g. a family), then the number of records of all the genera, species, sub-species etc contained within that group will be included. Various options to control the display are available by right-clicking on the chart:


You can select the length of the period for which records are counted: the options are week, fortnight or month.

You can select the colour of the bars.

You can set constraints, for example, you may want to include only records of adult females or exclude records of juvenile stages.

You can save the histogram in a variety of image formats or save the underlying data to an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.
