GIS Mapping

Our in-house GIS system (MapInfo) is a powerful tool that enables us to digitize survey data and produce accurate maps and gives us the capability to undertake spatial analysis.

We normally use GIS to map Phase 1 or NVC habitat data; however, we have also used it to present bat activity patterns in relation to landscape features, environmental stewardship schemes, mitigation/compensation schemes, ranging patterns of badgers for bait-marking studies. 

We were commissioned by Natural England to produce Opportunity and Vulnerability maps for the West Midlands region aimed at creating GIS layers that identified a range of levels of habitat opportunity and vulnerability.

Survey Reminders

June

Bat and dormouse surveys are continuing at this time of year. Badger licences to disturb or interfere with a sett are issued from early July until late November.

Please refer to our survey timetable for further information on surveys that can be undertaken this season.
