As of September 2017, the BTAA Geoportal has three new features:
Enhanced Metadata Display
Many records include the text “metadata” in the right hand toolbox. Clicking this item will bring up an HTML view of geospatial metadata in either the FGDC or ISO19139 standard.
Browse for Items on the Map
The map on the homepage now displays a center point for each record in the geoportal. Users can zoom into clustered markers to see more detail and select single points to go directly to the item’s landing page.
Autocomplete for the Search box
When typing text into the Search box, the geoportal will dynamically show matching keywords. For example, typing bi into the Search box returns a dropdown list of terms containing that string, such as biota, biology, and biogeography.
