I am finally starting to get access to some of the data from the new version of ispot which is allowing a few other issues to be discovered.
One of them is that there are a lot of ID’s that don’t link to the dictionaries and so the information is of much less value since it does not link up to the rest of the site.
Currently we can’t alter the page where you enter an ID but I would urge everyone to select suitable species from the dropdown list if at all possible. Very many of the species that are currently not linked to the dictionary are indeed in the dictionary but the user appears to have typed in the name rather than selecting it. Of course there are some species that are not in the dictionaries.
