The BSBI has just updated the BSBI MapMate website with the BSBI MapMate Handbook by Martin Rand. It includes several additional training videos on creating species richness maps and a page of custom queries which will be useful for Atlas 2020 planning. The development of both website and handbook has been kindly supported by Scottish Natural Heritage.
