Known spatial distributon of calafate (Berberis microphylla) in the Falkland Islands since 2000

The dataseries is a point shape file obtained from tidying up the raw data (excel file FK-FIG-581) and adding a series of GPS point location of Calafate taken in 2018 and 2019. The GIS shape file provides information on location, date, recorder names. Additionally for some records there is also mention on treatment used and quantity of herbicide used.

Lineage The point shape file is the result of a large tidy up of the reference excel file (FK-FIG-581). The main processing of the data involved having consistency in the date format and recorder names. Additionally, some fields added by Sally Poncet (notes on their collection) were not brought forward as specific only to few records, leaving the majority of the records with an empty value. GPS locations of 2018 and 2019 Calafate survey led by the department of agriculture. The excel file FK-FIG-581 reported a number of locations that were not mapped correctly due to mistakes in the lat/long coordinates. Due to the lack of original GPS points, it was impossible to correct these locations and it has been decided to exclude these points from the dataset. Hence, there is a difference in terms of calafate records between FK-FIG-581 and this spatial dataset.
