You can contribute species records by entering data directly into the BioNet Atlas interface, or by bulk uploading data using the excel spreadsheets provided. There is a different upload process for systematic survey and incidental species sightings. Refer to the flowchart for process steps.
Validations occur both on entry into the spreadsheet and for upload within the application, giving you, the contributor, greater input and accountability in ensuring your data is incorporated into BioNet Atlas as accurately as possible.
How do I upload Species Sightings data?
Sightings of plants and animals not captured through a systematic survey (eg unusual one-off sightings) are incorporated into the Species Sightings data collection in a 3-step process.
