User guide 1 – Finding the species recorded in your area

Begin at the BioAtlas homepage and click on the Explore by location tile.

Once you enter a postal code or address, a map will appear with colored dots showing the occurrence records. You can alter the radius of the circle from the default 5km down to 1km or up to 10km. If you are using a Swedish postal code, please note that you need to write it with a space, e.g. 123 45.

The list at the left shows all the species that have been recorded at that location, as well as the number of records.

If you click on one of the Groups in the first column, the map and list change accordingly.

Clicking on Records at the top of the list puts the occurrences in order from the highest number of records to the lowest. Clicking Species orders the occurrences by scientific name.

By clicking on the individual occurrences on the map, you will get details for that particular record and you can open them up and view them. You can also change the map view in the upper left corner.
