    Room is still available in both our April 26th and April 27th training classes in San Diego.

    The CNDDB/RareFind/BIOS class is a six-hour course describing the background, purpose, and use of both the CNDDB dataset and the BIOS web-based map viewing tool (which includes access to the CNDDB). The class includes instruction and exercises on using many of the tools in both the online RareFind 5 and in BIOS 5, as well as viewing and querying the CNDDB dataset in BIOS. The course cost is $125. This class is open to people outside of the Department of Fish and Wildlife as well as to CDFW staff. The fee is waived for CDFW staff.  Registration information can be found on the CNDDB Training page.

    In October 2014, the CNDDB launched the Online Field Survey Form, an application designed to streamline submission of individual observations, capture data in a spatial database, and allow users to see reports of their submissions. As of February 2016 there are over 2,400 records in this system. For CNDDB subscribers we are making unprocessed animal observations from this system available after preliminary review via the CNDDB/Spotted Owl BIOS map viewer. The goal is to increase information flow, allowing users to view submissions before they are fully mapped and incorporated into RareFind5 and the CNDDB GIS data. Please consider submitting your observations of CNDDB tracked species via this tool. For additional information see the Online Field Survey Form section of the Submitting Data to the CNDDB webpage.
