This data can be uploaded/linked directly into any GIS software which supports geoJSON protocols, such as QGIS. More information on geoJSON can be found at

Add a geoJSON Vector layer to you project, pointing to the following link:

Alternatively, download the geoJSON data for use offline: Download

Please note that geoJSON files are mostly used by users of GIS software who want to do further analyses. For most users the species maps on the website will be sufficient, for example you can zoom in to see the specific location of a species. However, if you wat to analyse the data in more detail follow these steps. First install a GIS programme such as QGIS (it is free). You will then have to download the species's geoJSON file under the species maps in the Downloads tab (for example for Cape Rock-jumper). The following short video will then explain to you how to load the map into QGIS using the URL of the geoJSON page - Click here
