Mapping the recording effort in your county

Sometimes it is useful to know how much effort your spending on different parts of your county.
Using this search I can map the number of recording days I've spent in each tetrad of my county since the year 2000.

As far as I can see, DDb mapping doesn't allow you to modify frequency intervals on the map. Therefore it is useful to add 'Frequency' to the query, ie.

Varying the value entered in the frequency field (minimum in this example), will often reveal a more meaningful map, by excluding the many tetrads with just a few visits.
