CNDDB  Maps & Data

Online Map and Query Applications

CNDDB_GOV / Spotted Owl Viewer CNDDB_COM / Spotted Owl Viewer
RareFind 5
  • CNDDB subscription required. RareFind 5 is an Internet application that allows for more robust querying and reporting of the CNDDB data than the BIOS Data Viewer, but with no direct map interface. This application is a major rebuild of RareFind 4 that adds many features not found in RareFind 4, including: enhanced query functionality, better display of results, performance improvements, and better connectivity to mapping applications. Because it is an Internet application, RareFind 5 eliminates the need for users to install the RareFind 3 application on their computers and download the CNDDB data every month to update RareFind 3.     Please use Firefox or Chrome for best performance.
CNDDB QuickView Tool in BIOS
  • Free. This BIOS 5 tool provides access to the CNDDB data at the 7.5′ Quadrangle and County level. For more info on how to use the QuickView tool within BIOS 5, see the instructions. For more detailed CNDDB information, a subscription is required.
 

Data and RareFind 3

Monthly Data Updates
RareFind 3
  • CNDDB subscription required. RareFind 3 is a desktop Windows-based application that allows for robust querying of statewide data on rare species and natural community locations.

    The functionality of RareFind 3 has been replicated in our online RareFind 5 application. We plan to discontinue support for RareFind 3 sometime in 2014.
