The v4 release of iDigBio's Specimen Portal
includes a number of upgraded features that add to its functionality and usability. The IT Team has worked hard to provide the ability to display and query georeferenced data, including latitude and longitude, maximum and minimum elevation, and depth ranges, within bounding boxes.
Other record-specific data that can now be accessed includes: date collected, record and occurrence IDs, and, for paleontologists, earliest and latest Paleozoic period.
Many of these new features were reported as desired functionality in our recent community survey, reflecting that user expectations and iDigBio's deliverables are progressing along similar paths.
