Raising awareness of biodiversity issues within Ayrshire
We recently carried out a custom download of records from Ayrshire Joint Planning Unit on behalf of the Ayrshire Biological Records Centre.
Ayrshire Biological Records works in partnership with the NBN and recorders to display local records within Ayrshire. An online data portal allows users to interrogate recorded information and to display these spatially. The web facility integrates recorded information with a range of other GIS tools which allow the display of mapping, satellite imagery, habitat types and natural heritage designations.
To access the on line facility users are issued with a login account and password.
The system was developed in conjunction with the Local Biodiversity Action Plan group and the Ayrshire Joint Planning Unit. It is hoped that the web resource will contribute to raising awareness of biodiversity issues within Ayrshire.
