Subject: [Sabap2-l] New SABAP2 website

Good morning everyone,

A few days ago a new website was launched for the SABAP2 project. Hopefully most of you have already seen it and fiddled about with it a bit?

We are excited about this new site and hope that you will all find it useful.

As with any evolving project that involves lots of participants we do rely on your feedback and therefore we encourage you to visit the site, check it out and please send us your comments. Michael Brooks (the site manager) has added a ‘Comment on the new site’ tab at the top of the page for you to be able to easily submit your thoughts. Please sign in first, after which the tab will be visible. Website link: http://sabap2.adu.org.za/

The website is different from the previous one, some features are renamed for example. A few key points:

  1. The website is more mobile friendly than the previous one 🙂
  2. To manually add cards navigate to the ‘Add Data’ tab (previously called ‘Add a Fieldsheet’)
  3. Coverage maps are found under ‘Coverage’ and now include some very useful province specific maps. These maps can take a while to load, please be patient it will get there eventually!
  4. When looking for the data on a particular pentad you need to double click on it (the balloon from the previous website has been removed).
  5. The last 10 sightings of a species is not yet active, this will be sorted soon.
  6. ORFs are also still a work in progress
  7. Your observer number is now called your ‘CS’ number on the log in page, but it is still exactly the same.

Please feel free to get in touch if you cannot find a specific function or need any other help and we’ll gladly assist.

Best wishes,

Sanjo Rose

One thought on “New SABAP2 website

  1. I’m very sad that I no longer can seem to find the SABAP1 text for the different species, I found the comparison in changes to distribution patterns between SABAP 1 and SABAP 2 fascinating.
