Data Dashboard

Welcome to our Data Dashboard page where you can find automated, up-to-the-minute summary metrics of the data found in our National Phenology Database for the current year and past time periods.

Roll your mouse over the highlighed link for an explanation of each metric.

Please note the following: (1) the "total" column currently represents values in different formats (counts, percentages, and averages), (2) an "observation" includes the entire suite of phenophase status records taken for an individual plant or animal species on a given date/time; a single observation may contain up to 12 phenophase status records depending on the species, and (3) the phenophase record tables are not yet automatically generated. This page will continue to be updated periodically.
