Wiltshire and Swindon Biological Records Centre

Enquiry Services

A key function of WSBRC is to provide biological information to a variety of users. These might be local authorities, statutory agencies, environmental consultants, landowners, voluntary organisations and members of the public.

WSBRC provides products and services including data searches, production of species distribution maps, habitat mapping, data analysis or interpretation and MapInfo GIS and data management training. The information provided allows decision makers and other users a clearer picture of the wildlife interest of an area.

Many of these services are provided via service level agreements with partner organisations that support the core aims of WSBRC. We are more than happy to discuss new long-term agreements or the provision of ad hoc professional services with potential clients at any time.

By carrying out these and other paid professional services, WSBRC can continue to provide a variety of free information and support services to volunteer recorders and the general public.
