Validated sightings reported from 2019 onwards by avvistAPP users. avvistAPP is a free citizen science tool that allows everyone to actively contribute to the monitoring of marine animals. Available both in Google and Apple app stores. App description: https://doi.org/10.13120/h127-9v54
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 22 records.
2 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
The table below shows only published versions of the resource that are publicly accessible.
