If you've ever wanted to see how eBird hotspots overlap the Maine Bird Atlas blocks...here is a map for you: https://arcg.is/0P1u4q. If you click on a hotspot, it will show which block contains it (though of course the actual extent of the hotspot may cross over to another block), and will give you a link to the observations for both the atlas block and the hotspot. The priority blocks that haven't been adopted yet are highlighted in blue, and conserved land is highlighted in brown, too. If you click on "Contents" you can add aerial imagery.
This is helping me plan birding trips with the Bird Atlas in mind, and I hope others can get use out of it too. The data come from eBird and Maine IFW, mostly.
