Topic: NBN Record Cleaner Species dictionary updated June 2014


There has been a delay in updating the species dictionary used by the NBN Record Cleaner. This delay resulted from an issue with the software update mechanism which has now been resolved.

An updated version of the species dictionary can now be downloaded using the software updates available link on the Data Load form. On using the NBN Record Cleaner the species dictionary should then automatically update with an "updating species dictionary" message before the dataset is validated. New or fresh installs of the NBN Record Cleaner also requires this updated dictionary to be downloaded using the software updates.

A further species dictionary update will be provided in the near future to incorporate the latest species list additions in the NHM UK Species Inventory. This includes the new list of marine species as used in the latest version of marine recorder.

Best wishes

NBN Technical Liaison Officer
