Here are a few helpful tools to ensure that you map and record the correct location and grid reference for your records.
|Grid References||We highly recommend Bedfordshire Natural History Society’s Grab a Grid Ref for obtaining grid references for locations.|
| Maps: Cumbria Tetrads, Hectads and Vice-counties
DINTY tetrads (2km squares) of the form NY33J, hectads (10km squares) such as NY33 and Watsonian vice-counties such as Vice-county 69 Westmorland with Furness are all often used in biological recording. To get the hectad, tetrad or vice-county for a particular place we recommend using the Grab a Grid Reference facility above.
For an overview of the county, please download an A3 PDF map.
