Interpretation / Analysis
One of the main ways in which the data on the NBN Gateway will be used in the future, we believe, will be for analysis and interpretation. With the data all held in one place it will make it all the easier to interrogate the information and ultimately to understand distribution changes over the years.
The data on the Gateway has already been used to help interpret changes in the UK's biodiversity.
