The file visits is darived from the database (known as the Falkland Islands Biodiversity Database) containing records for survey visits to all islands (with the exception of islands in freshwater bodies) in the Falkland Islands. The Visits data field is essential for ensuring systematic data entry of all environmental data (birds, mammals, invasive species, plants, eradiacation and tussac). In fact, all records relating to these items have been entered in association with the date of survey visit, surveyor's name and affiliation. The main purpose of the file visit is to provide an easy understanding of the areas that have been visited more often by researchers and which still need more investigation. It is worth noting that a desktop assessment, for example using Google Earth or aerial photographic images, is also considered to be a 'visit'.

Lineage The file was created by pulling together information from the FIDB main tables: bird, plants, mammals, eradication, invasives, tussac. From each table, the following columns were copied and pasted in a new table. lat, long, english name, day, month, year, surveyors, organisation, full reference, notes. Then, it was necessary to add a unique ID number and a field called category to associate each record with the purpose of the survey.
