We are currently testing our new bulk upload feature at eBird (www.ebird.org).
This tool allows the user to upload existing data from Excel, Access, AviSys
etc.--any data that can be put into a CSV, or "comma separated values,"
file. If you have been keeping your field notes in Excel or have data in
some other electronic format, and you're interested in testing the upload
tool please contact me at bls42@...
. I'd be happy to help you get
your old data into eBird and to help work out some of the potential bugs in
this system before it's launched to the world!
This goes for individual users as well as bird clubs, Audubon chapters etc.
I'm interested in pulling in as much of the existing digital observational
data as possible!
