Distribution maps of the beetle fauna of Germany

Manual for the map module
The underlying database for our distribution maps are beetle records from Germany made by contributors, whose contribution to this project is gratefully acknowledged. Please note, that the distribution patterns displayed in the maps reflect the available data from the current contributors, and are by far not exhaustive. Further contributions from all parts of Germany are highly welcome. The locations shown are normalized according to the map sheets of TK25 (German ordnance map). The data can be displayed as list, thumbnails or static/dynamic map. In the latter mode you can also gather map sheet data.
