Sample Atlas Maps: The following maps and layout are a sample of what the Breeding Bird Atlas CD contains. We start with a species overview. (All maps and text are copyright © 2001 by Oregon Field Ornithologists, all right reserved.)
Clicking on the thumbnail of the distribution map in the above overview brings up a larger map that shows the hexagons, colored for "possible," probable," and "confirmed."
Clicking on the thumbnail of the habitat map in the above overview brings up a larger map that shows suitable habitat overlaid with the actual sightings.
Clicking on any of the hexagons within this habitat map brings a closer view of the habitats and breeding levels.
Then, clicking on any of the hexagons within this map brings a close-up map of the hexagon and a link to the details of all the bird sightings recorded for that hexagon.
This is only a sample of what's on the Atlas CD. All the data for the squares is included. There are distribution maps and photographs of all the habitats within the state. There is data on which hexagons recorded the most species, and which hexagons received the most birding coverage. There are lists of what species that were expected in each hexagon weren't found. In addition, there is the Atlas purpose, procedures, and background information, along with help screens to explain all the maps and data.
