Methodology

Quality control

The records included in this dataset are largely from unknown individuals and are therefore generally of unknown reliability. This data has, however, been verified using the NBN Record Cleaner or other experts, such as Vice County Recorders. Much of this data has been digitised from paper records with a validation procedure in place and so should reflect the original records.

Method Steps

  1. This dataset collates records submitted to Scottish Wildlife Trust by the public. The majority of the data will likely comprise incidental records from visits to Scottish Wildlife Trust reserves, but data collection methods will vary due to the nature of the data. Records in this dataset have undergone a level of verification, by either the NBN Record Cleaner or other experts.
