This Targeting Revisits Map shows the 1km squares from which one or more Orthoptera species (grasshoppers, bush crickets and crickets) have been recorded through the Grasshoppers and Allied Species Recording Scheme.
The colour of each square shows the status of each site based on exisiting and new records (records made or submitted in 2022).
Your feedback on these maps is vital. If you have used these maps, please give us feedback for us to continue supporting and improving this tool.
Please note the map may take a while to load or update
Researchers at the Biological Records Centre at UKCEH use data from 'well recorded' squares (dark green on the map: with visits in multiple years) to estimate species trends. You can increase the amount of data for this analysis by revisiting squares that have records from only one year in the past – and so to turn the bright pink 'targets for revisit' to dark green, 'well recorded' squares. More information.
Clicking on a square will show a pop-up containing summary statistics for the 1km square.
This Targeting Revisits Map is updated continuously with records submitted to iRecord. Records submitted to the recording scheme via other routes will appear on the Targeting Revisits Map in due course.
All records are valuable, but when recording it is especially valuable to record all the species that you observe during a visit.
