Bulletin #81

Bear with, I'm just writing various pieces and  these links need to be put here first as links don't work from paper. All will become clear in the Bulletin.

How to share species data through the NBN Gateway
I told Steve Crellin I'd record the steps I took to uploading datasets to the NBN Gateway (I've 3 on the go).
This won't make a lot of sense until the Bulletin is available, the steps are linked to text in the article.
D. Here's the relevant page on NBN website that deals with the methodology after one has sorted, checked and rechecked the dataset within a copy of Recorder: http://www.nbn.org.uk/Share-Data/Provid … klist.aspx
(so much chit chat there but this page is the nitty gritty of where to send it, read all the other stuff too Steve)

Re: Bulletin #81

Thanks Darwyn,

I shall follow your NBN upload notes with interest, especially after yesterday's email that arrived from Buglife that has given me a further shove towards updating the sepsid content of the Gateway.

Re: Bulletin #81

How to share species data through the NBN Gateway
This took a while to develop, it's been through several versions whilst Steve and I discussed it:

Probably only of interest to schemes wanting to upload their data or to others wanting to understand the mechanisms
