Create your own charts from data in the records database

Click/tap your selection to move to the next level down:

Most detailed of the charts showing tweets per day within selected months:

  • Select a month and optionally a year and see the number of reports for each day during that month
  • This can be restricted to a selected species (or species group) and/or a location
  • Useful for getting a better idea of exactly when a species appears or disappears each year  

Possibly the most useful chart that shows the number of reports per week across a year:

  • Select a species, or species group, and see the number of reports for each week of the year
  • Optionally select records for a single year for comparative purposes or restrict to reports from a single site
  • Provides a quite detailed view of the activity of a species or species group over the course of the year

A broad brush chart showing reports per month across the year:

  • Select a species or species group and the number of reports for each month of the year
  • Optionally select records for a single year for comparative purposes and option to restrict to prefered site
  • Useful for seeing when a species, or group of species, is most active during the year

 


Caution: Due the volume of records in the Nature of Dorset database users of mobile devices may find these charts take a while to load. The charts will be best viewed in landscape mode.


 

The boxes at the top of the chart are the 'filters'; click the down arrow and choose your selection from the options available. Once you have made your selection click 'Apply' and await the reults! The filters you have chosen remain after the data is displayed and you can change them, or apply additional ones, until you have content you require. To start again use the 'reset' option. Do not use Species Group, Species Sub-Group and Species together! Not only is this necessary as you can only work at one level not all three if you choose a species group of birds and a species of large white you will not get any results ...
