Data explorer

Data explorer 2.0 provides a simple way to estimate trends from historic count data in the USGS Bird Point Count Database. The program is currently available only as a desktop application. Here is a brief overview of how it works with screenshots from the actual program.

You start by choosing a land unit

Then select points

The program then uses R to analyze the data, create graphs, and summarize results in Excel

More information on the program and the analysis (which accounts for time of day, observer, and point-level variation) is available in the Online Help Files

This project was made possible by the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency, the Lower Mississippi Valley Joint Venture, and the Eastern Coordinated Bird Monitoring Partnership.
