Exclude 'unmapped' records

by AndyAmphlett » Wed Jun 19, 2019 8:31 am


Is there a way to exclude records with the "atlas mapping flag" set as "Do not map as part of native distribution"? ie records of correctly identified taxa, but record refers to planted occurrences in a non-wild situation, eg. a garden. There are occasions when it would be better to exclude such records from search results.

The option is under 'more options' => 'options' => 'do-not-map filter'

Possibly this should be enabled by default.
