We’re excited to be able to tell you about the new Ecology and Fish Data Explorer that’s now available to use:
The explorer is a user-friendly map interface that can be used by internal or external customers to view and download freshwater fish, macroinvertebrate, diatom and macrophyte data. For expert users there is also the facility to bulk download data. Supporting documentation with information and FAQ’s that explain our data are also included and are available to download.
The Ecology and Fish Data Explorer can be accessed also via the Defra Data Services Platform app gallery.
Data behind the explorer is updated quarterly and contains just over 47,000 sites and 358,000 surveys with some dating back as early as 1965! The data was last updated at the end of February 2020.
We would appreciate your feedback on this new system. You can also use the link in the explorer to let us know what you think about this tool so far.
