GeoCAT is designed to produce rapid species level conservation assessments based on IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria (IUCN 2001). Through an easy to use interface with a familiar Google Map underlay, you can upload primary occurrence data for a species and at the click of a button, calculate values relating to the geographic range of a species.
At a glance, what you can do
- Choose a species to assess or create a new project from scratch
- Upload your own occurrence data e.g. co-ordinates of specimens, field observations or plot samples from an existing dataset
- Manually add occurrence points to the map based on your own knowledge
- Import occurrence data from online sources such as GBIF or Flickr
- Single-click analysis of Extent of Occurrence (EOO) and Area of Occupancy (AOO)
- Visualise your results in Google Earth
- Download occurrence data used in the analysis
- Save your project and add more data later or share with partners in a collaboration
- View and save all the vital statistics as a mini-report
