Hello from Bowen Island, BC!

For many years I was only a birder but life is too short to be a 1% naturalist. Now I log everything I see.

I'm a software developer by trade, so I combine this with my interest in nature. Examples:

  • I wrote a script to visualize any iNat taxon data on external websites. As an example, it's used here to present BC moth and butterfly observation data here on the BC Lepidopterist's Guild site: https://bcleps.weebly.com/inat.html
  • Many years before eBird improved their website I created https://birdsearch.org for an easier way to view the totality of birds being spotted currently in a region.
  • This is a tool to generate checklists from raw spreadsheet data for Biodiversity Galiano: https://imerss.github.io/checklist-generator/

These are all free and open source, so ping me if you think they could help you.
