Spatial Portal help

The Spatial Portal is a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and provides powerful visualisation and analysis tools. The Spatial Portal focuses on where a chosen species was located, what species were found in a defined area and what are the environmental conditions in that area.


Use the Spatial Portal to add species occurrence records to maps along with environmental and contextual information to produce distributions, predictive models and charts of the relationships between biodiversity and the environment. Import your own records and export maps and data sets. Use the results of your analysis to subset spatially and produce new areas to report on and analyse.
