About searching 

Additional Filters

Datasets can be discovered and then requested using the integrated search, which provides a number of ways to locate datasets of interest:

  • Search on metadata, species and descriptive information to find datasets.
  • Use a broad regional boundary to display all the included datasets.
  • Place a pin on to the map to discover plots within a resizable box.

If you are interested in presence/absence data for specific taxa, you can download these for our open access datasets from GBIF, NZPCN or request them from the NVS database administrator.

How to search

  1. Begin your search by typing a value into the metadata or species names boxes, or by selecting a Department of Conservation (DOC) Conservancy from the provided list. You can enter just one of these criteria, or choose a combination of them.
  2. Select criteria in the 'Additional Filters' selection to narrow your search and so reduce the size of your result set.
  3. Search results are shown at the bottom of the search page. There are three ways to view the results that matched your search criteria:
    • A map of plot locations,
    • A list of datasets,
    • A list of all the species present in the matching datasets' species.
  4. You can further narrow down results on the map by clicking the 'Filter by Location' option found above the map. This will place a pin on the map with a resizable box. Drag the pin around and resize the edges or corners of the box to adjust the search area.
