GR / VC mismatch - error in results?

by AndyAmphlett » Fri Dec 22, 2017 12:09 am

Hi Tom,

This query - ... f469496788 - looking for mismatches of grid ref and vc within 1km of the VCH39 Antrim boundary finds 7 mismatches, but one of them (Parietaria judaica) is from VCH38, and should not be returned. The site grid ref for the record is in VCH38 and so should not be tagged as a mismatch anyway. The same record is returned by any query looking for VCH39 x grid ref mismatches. I have not seen this behavior before, but have not looked at many Irish records before, (am assisting the VCR).

Hi Andy,

Thanks for noting this. There are still some problems with the boundaries used for Ireland.

I'm away at the moment, but will investigate this once I'm back after Christmas.
