Methodology

Quality control

The records included in this dataset are a result of survey or monitoring by known reserve convenors or Scottish Wildlife Trust volunteer and are thought to be of a reasonable standard. This data is not verified, but due to the sources of the data, it is considered to be reasonably reliable. 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. As this is a collated dataset of records from multiple reserve convenors and Scottish Wildlife Trust volunteers, data collection methods will vary. Records may reflect regular species or habitat monitoring or be more adhoc, comprising sightings made during a site visit. Data collection methods for targeted survey may be listed in the survey level metadata. This data is not verified, but due to the sources of the data, it is considered to be reasonably reliable.
