National Biodiversity Data Centre maps added

April 10, 2018

The mapping system of the National Biodiversity Data Centre (NBDC) received a major overhaul as the Centre moved away from a Microsoft Silverlight-based system to one powered by ArcGIS. One of the many benefits of this change is the introduction of the facility to embed live maps on a third-party websites. These embedded maps update automatically as records are added for a given species. Trichoptera Ireland has taken advantage of this new facility by adding embedded maps to the species profiles for all Irish caddisfly species. These species profiles can be accessed through the Irish Trichoptera Checklist tab.

Below is an example of the NBDC distribution maps showing the distribution of Goera pilosa.
