Viewing and Querying Advanced Records
Viewing a record from a table or a Custom Query
You can view a table of all records for observations, surveys, treatments, infestation management, or assessments by clicking the appropriate link under View Table box on your home page.
You can also view observations in a table by choosing the data you’d like to view from the “View my Data in a Table” drop-down at the bottom of your home page.
Return to section: Viewing and Querying Observations
Once you have opened the appropriate table, you can open an individual record by clicking on its row in the table. The results of the table can be filtered by typing search terms into the search box, such as a username, date, survey type, or species name. A particular record can also be queried by clicking the “Custom Data Query” button at the top right corner of the table.
The Custom Query allows you to search different fields specific to the record type (i.e. assessment, survey etc.). These fields may include the person who submitted the record, the organization affiliated with the record, the date of the survey or treatment, or various other criteria. Use the drop down menus to define the criteria for which you want to search for records. See the image of the Treatment Custom Query as an example.
Once you have set your parameters, click View Table to see the resulting list of records in a table, or View on Map to display the records on the map.
The custom query for each record type can also be accessed under the Data Management tab. From the home page select “Data Management”
Scroll down to the section for the record type that you wish to query, and select the “Custom Query” link. See the image of the treatment section under the “Data Management” tab as an example.
Viewing a record from the map
An advanced record can also be found by navigating the map. You can either:
Use the search bar to enter your record ID number and zoom directly to the record. For instructions on how to do this, see View a Single Record.
Or, if you do not know the record number, navigate to the area where you would expect to see the record mapped. For instructions on navigating the map, see Zoom to an area on the map.
Once you have zoomed to the area where the record you want to view should be mapped, turn on the appropriate “Invasive Species Details” Layer.
Click the polygons visible in on the map to generate a table of those records. Then click on the ID button to open the full record details.
