User Guide 9 

To generate a field guide of local species, you will first need to search for species in your location. For this, see User Guide 1—Finding the species recorded in your area.

It is possible that there are a large number of species at the location. From the list on the left, choose the group that you would like to see in the field guide.

With that group selected, click on Download.

Select Species Field Guide, then Start Download, choose a reason from the drop down list, then click Next. 

A field guide will be generated and emailed to you. It has the name of the species, a picture and the occurrence records map.

If your selected group is large, you can filter the species in your list by going to View selected records.

There are a number of filters you can use. Look at the list of facets in the list under Narrow your results. You might like to filter based on a data source you trust, or a particular collector. 

This example shows how to limit your field guide to a few recent years only. Click on Customise filters.

Tick the box next to Year.

Click on choose more.

A list of the results will appear. Then click on Downloads.

Check the boxes next to the years you want then click Include selected items. Then, follow the steps from Download above to generate the field guide from the filtered data. 

A field guide with only the chosen species will be generated and the link will be emailed to you.
