This Targeting Revisits Map shows the 1km squares from which one or more Orthoptera species (grasshoppers, bush crickets and crickets) have been recorded through the Grasshoppers and Allied Species Recording Scheme .
The colour of each square shows the status of each site based on exisiting and new records (records made or submitted in 2021):

The Targeting Revisits Map highlights 1km grid squares that currently only have records from a single year in the past (bright pink on the map). Researchers at the Biological Records Centre at UKCEH use data from 'well recorded' squares (dark green on the map: with visits in multiple years) to estimate species trends. Therefore you can increase the amount of data for analysis by revisiting squares that have records from only one year in the past – and so to turn the bright pink 'targets for revisit' to dark green, 'well recorded' squares. More information.
Clicking on a square will show a pop-up containing summary statistics for the 1km square: the number of years with data, the number of Orthoptera species recorded (grasshoppers, bush crickets and crickets), the number of visits and the first/last years with data.
