This app helps you find your checklists for which the associated location is not an eBird hotspot (i.e. personal location) and suggests nearby hotspots. A link to to merge your personal location to the hotspot will be provided. Assigning a hotspot to your data is essential for data analysis. For instance, you can then compute the probability of observation of each specie for a given hotspot and generate a checklist. Step by step instructions are given below.
The first step is to download all your eBird data on your computer.
MyEBirdData.csv using the upload file below. Note that the file is never sent to our server, only used in your browser.
You can now see all your birded locations with the number of checklists (icon value).
From these locations, we listed below the different countries/regions you've been birding. The blue badges 25 indicate the number of different locations for that particular region.
Click on the download icon to download all eBird hotspots for that region. We recommend that you download regions rather than countries when possible.
Once you are done, click on the button "Find locations without hotspot" below the list.
Locations without hotspots are listed in the table below and sorted by distance to the nearest hotspot (right column). Click on each line to view these on the map.
If you would like to change the location, click on your marker on the map and a link to your checklist will be provided. There, simply click on "Edit location". If you wish to change several checklists from the same location, we suggest you use the "My location" page of eBird.
Last tip, you can display/hide the eBird hotspots by toggling the checkbox of the layer on the top-right corner of your screen. Sometimes your personal location marker is hidden behind a hotspot marker.
