Constrain the extent of your exported results

This one is a short post.

Following a suggestion by Chris Barratt, Biodiverse version 2 will allow users to use a definition query when exporting spatial outputs.  This means you can run your analysis for a large data set, but limit the set of exported groups to a subset.

If the analysis itself used a definition query then the export windows will set that by default.  Just delete it to export all records.

Users can specify a definition query when exporting their data.  In this case the analysis also used a definition query so it is specified by default. 

The exported data only contain those groups (cells) that passed the definition query.  In this screenshot, no-data cells are in light grey to indicate the full extent of the exported data set.
