Generally about BirdSTATs:
The Species Trends Analysis Tool for birds (BirdSTATs) is an open source Microsoft Access database for the preparation and statistical analysis of bird counts data in a standardised way. The BirdSTATs tool is programmed to use and automatically run the program TRIM (TRends and Indices for Monitoring data) in batch mode to perform the statistical analysis for series of bird counts in the dataset. In this way it is suitable for use in all European countries participating in the Pan European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS). Using the BirdSTATs tool results in standardised indices that are used as subsets by the PECBMS for the calculation of overarching European wild bird indicators.
The BirdSTATs tool is developed at the request of the Pan European Common Bird Monitoring Scheme (PECBMS) by Bioland Informatie. Designing and programming of the tool is funded by the European Commission through British Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
The fact that this tool is an open source database allows users to adapt or expand the tool to their own demands. The tool is also usable for other species groups.
