FSC BioLinks QGIS Plugin Consultation

We're undertaking a consultation on the FSC QGIS Plugin. We'd like to know what works for you, what doesn't and what functionality you'd like to see added to the tool as we take it forward over the coming years during the BioLinks project. It would be a great help to us if you could spare a few minutes to complete the following short consultation. None of the questions are mandatory, so answer as many or as few as you'd like. Obviously the more complete your response, the better we'll understand the needs of our community of users.

Indicate all those that apply.

How frequently do you use the current tools?
There are currently four tools in the FSC QGIS Plugin. How often do you use each?
The OSGR tool helps you to see what the OS grid reference (OSGR) is under your cursor and allows you to navigate to an OSGR. It also allows you to generate grids at different levels of precision. Indicate how often you use any feature of the tool.
The Biological Records tool allows you to take CSV files of biological records geocoded with OS grid references (or easting/northings or lat/longs) and quickly create maps from them - either as points representing individual records or aggregated into 'atlas maps'. It allows you to filter on taxa and can automate the generation of large numbers of maps. Indicate how often you use any feature of the tool.
The NBN tool provides a convenient way of using NBN Atlas web mapping services (WMS) directly within QGIS and also provides a convenient way to download raw records. Indicate how often you use any feature of the tool.
The Map Mashup tool provides a convenient, ad hoc, way of viewing raster maps from the internet within QGIS. Indicate how often you use any feature of the tool.
We'd really like to understand how users of the FSC QGIS Plugin use it. Write as little or as much as you like.
We'd like to hear what features of the current tools work best for you and what you find most useful. Write as little or as much as you like.
We'd like you to tell us which of the features which you currently use, or would like to use, don't work so well for you. How could they be improved to make them more functional for you? Write as little or as much as you like.
Here's your chance to ask for features, or even entirely new tools, that would make your life as a biological recorder using QGIS easier. These could be small improvements or big ideas. Let your imagination run wild! Write as little or as much as you like.
We'd like get an idea of how many of the plugin's users are based in the UK and how many are using it in other parts of the world.
Select all those that apply to you.
If you use the FSC QGIS Plugin on behalf of an organisation, either voluntary or professional, list them here (if you are able to). If there is more than one, just separate them with commas.
This is not a mandatory field so leave it blank if you want to remain anonymous. We will only use your name if you give us permission to contact you.
