Topic: NBN Portal and NSSs
A nice tidy job at https://docs.nbnatlas.org/share-data-wi … a-partner/ but still very short on documentation that will help NSSs upload their data to the Atlas.
A major omission is a method which many Recording Schemes are currently using to upload data. In partnership with BRC they are using iRecord. An example of a recent one would be the Calliphoridae Recording Scheme (dataset at https://registry.nbnatlas.org/public/show/dr1570) but there are many others in the pipeline or actively operating.
The NBN portal documentation needs to include this method in the "Share species occurrence records section", how about a downloadable pdf document from Helen Roy? Don't forget to add the pros and cons of having one's Recording Scheme appear within the BRC collection (there are cons).
For NSSs using more traditional methods the "share" instructions are not adequate, the information there may be adequate for a LERC but you can bet they all have their own "in-house" documents which clarify their own methodologies as I've had to do to assist NSSs upload.
More and better documentation please.
