Abstract 

NBN Record Cleaner is a new, free software tool to help people improve the quality of their wildlife records and databases.
Whether you are an individual recorder or work in an organisation such as Local Record Centre or a Recording Scheme, the NBN Record Cleaner is designed to help you spot common problems in your data. The goal is to aid the process of data cleaning and ensure the quality of any datasets you pass on to others.

It is designed to access biological records stored in a wide variety of formats such as text files (CSV, tab delimited, etc), Excel spreadsheets and databases - including those in biological recording packages such as Recorder and MapMate. It also allows you to check that your dataset is in the NBN Exchange Format prior to submission to the NBN Gateway.
