Five Minute Bird Count feature

Hi There,

Do you still have plans in the pipeline for extending the database to allow for entering results for and analysing 5 minute bird count data.

In the Wakatipu we have over 12 community trapping groups and growing. As we are new we have initiated a plan to gather 5MBC baseline data to compliment all the trapping efforts, however there are few readily available tools to easily analyse the data.

It would be a great feature to add to Trap.NZ and having used Trap.Nz for a couple of years can see how it could be applied to log results, generate historical and summary reports, and create heat maps showing the different species in a region and changes over time. would nicely fill this niche vs a National DOC spreadsheet hidden away somewhere.

Please advice if and what plans there are and when the community might see something.

Hi Philip

Happy to say work on this has now started - we will add the ability for 5MBCs to be entered and reported on (and the ability to load in historical data). It will likely take a couple of months to implement.
