SERS ESRI Dashboard

The Swedish Electrofishing Register (SERS) is a comprehensive database that records electrofishing data in Sweden. It serves as a vital tool for researchers and policymakers, providing valuable insights into the health and abundance of aquatic populations, helping to ensure effective conservation and management strategies for Swedish water bodies.

Use of SERS is a daily occurance to me and while the standard web form request, or fickle map to draw a polygon to create a site selection is not the most user-friendly I exported the data to an ESRI dashboard to allow for easy browsing.
