Freshwater Fish Surveys (NFPD) - Lack of Location Data

Hello,

Is it possible for precise location data for survey locations to be added to all the Freshwater Fish Surveys (NFPD) datasets, especially the freshwater fish sites dataset. I understand that the freshwater fish counts dataset has this information (in the form of a national grid reference column) but all the others lack it. This would make using the datasets more user-friendly and mean that you do not have to flick between them constantly to obtain the data regarding the survey sites location. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

All the best.

Good afternoon and apologies for the delay in responding to your enquiry.

I have received the following information from colleagues working with this data: 

Thank you very much for your feedback on the freshwater fish datasets. We have received similar feedback from other users too, indicating that it would be really useful to include the site NGR, easting & northing on the freshwater fish sites data tab. It is one of the enhancements we are planning for future. We don’t intend to add NGRs to all the datasets though, as the datasets can be joined together using the unique identifiers, such as site_id and survey_id.
