CNDDB Maps & Data
Online Map and Query Applications
- CNDDB in BIOS 5 for CDFW Staff and Government CNDDB Subscribers.
- CNDDB in BIOS 5 for Non-Government CNDDB Subscribers.
These robust map applications provide access to the spatial detail of both the CNDDB data and Spotted Owl Observation data in the BIOS 5 Data Viewer. Note that there are hundreds of data layers available in the BIOS 5 Data Viewer; we have just pre-loaded these data sets for your convenience.
- CNDDB subscription required. RareFind 5 is an Internet application that allows for more robust querying and reporting of the CNDDB data than the BIOS Data Viewer, but with no direct map interface. This application is a major rebuild of RareFind 4 that adds many features not found in RareFind 4, including: enhanced query functionality, better display of results, performance improvements, and better connectivity to mapping applications. Because it is an Internet application, RareFind 5 eliminates the need for users to install the RareFind 3 application on their computers and download the CNDDB data every month to update RareFind 3. Please use Firefox or Chrome for best performance.
Due to be discontinued at the end of 2013.

Data and RareFind 3
CNDDB subscription required. RareFind 3 is a
desktop Windows-based application that allows for robust querying of statewide data on rare species and natural community locations.
The functionality of RareFind 3 has been replicated in our online RareFind 5 application. We plan to discontinue support for RareFind 3 sometime in 2014.
