Mapping Tools

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.

Mapping Tool This is an interactive web mapping tool with Google and Open StreetMap layers developed using OpenLayers Library and Proj4js Library.
