Finding Your Way Around

There's a lot of features and the plan is to add a lot more. A comprehensive manual is currently not part of the plan, the current plan is to provide in-application guidance for features that are not self explanitory. In-application guidance can be activated by clicking the map icon
. Note that in-application tours are only available on devices with larger screens. Don't be afraid to explore, join the Katahdin Tools group and discuss or ask questions if the results do not make sense.

You can make a difference, all changes, enhancements and new features suggested will be considered.

Registration Data

NSIP Id's and KHSI Registration Numbers are associated with each other in the KHSI Registry as well as in the NSIP data, these definitions do not always overlap. The quality of these two sources also vary a lot. This tool tries to expand mappings between KHSI Registration Numbers and NSIP Id's by discovering associations that are not explicitly entered by users. Various strategies are used to validate the associciations but this process is not perfect, you can trust the data but please verify for yourself.
