C5.040 Application to select vectorial units by environmental and spatial criteria

Due to the lack of quality and incompleteness of significant part of biological information research on biodiversity can be biased. Additional surveys directed to fill in all gaps in knowledge and recover a reliable picture of the distribution for highly diverse taxa are impossible to conduct because of limited time and resources. That is why alternatives to assess the reliability and/or enhance the information currently stored in biodiversity databases are preferred
One of these alternatives can be the EDIT mapViewer tool which should allow to “evaluate whether the areas in which reliable (complete) inventories have been detected cover the range of environmental conditions of all the analyzed area (polygonal layer selected by user)”.

This would be a method of allocation with selected environmental data as friction parameter.
