VC86-wide record output - something missing?

by Matt Harding » Fri Mar 20, 2020 8:27 am

Hi folks,

I'm trying to output all VC86 records. I run the search and download, and get a set of records. Some species and records don't seem to be included when I compare with previous years' outputs. I run the search grouped by taxon within the DDb, and the species reappear. For example Abies alba is in the DDb, but not outputting in the all record download.

Am I missing something?!

Cheers,

Matt

Matt, vc86 has >186000 records which exceeds the download limit (think it is 150K). If you really do want all the records as a download you'd need to ask Tom to do the download and send you a link. Or split the records by date, eg pre 2000 and post 1999.

Excellent, thanks Andy!
I was able to run it ok in previous years - the Atlas 2020 record influx must have tipped it over the download limit.

Much appreciated,

Matt

Thanks Andy. I'd not spotted this question.
