Interactive and Static Maps

The Triangle Bird Count uses randomly generated GPS point locations distributed across the limits of each of the major cities in the Triangle region. These points are based on a 1 km x 1 km grid overlaid on maps of each city.

Interactive Map

The full map can be best viewed on a computer (not phone or tablet) as the map is graphics-intensive and can take a while to load. Zoom in and find the points you are most interested in. Click on the point to find its ID. After finding the points you would like to survey, fill out this form to sign up to reserve your points. The map below is automatically set to view the currently selected volunteer points. Use the legend to toggle on different layers to view all available points. 

Some of the points on the interactive map are not finalized; some points have not been ground-truthed and still need to be moved off private property. If you are interested in volunteering and assisting with ground-truthing and taking 360-degree photographs of each site please send an email to Jin Bai at

Static Maps

Currently, we have static maps of the point locations in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and Cary, in addition to the interactive web map above.
