You will receive an instant quote for the search. As soon as you accept the quote and submit your request, we will process the data.How do I request data that doesn't fall into one of the standard packages?
If your data request does not fall within our standard packages, we will carry out a custom search at an additional cost. As our eMapper system allows you to customise the search results yourself, enquiries for records of a single species or groups will not be any cheaper than a standard search package.When will I get the results of my search?
We aim to provide:
● all standard packages within one working day
of receipt of a request
● custom searches within one week
of receipt of a request
This is subject to request type, search area size and working hours.What will I receive?
For other types of data requests, results are made available through the eMapper system, with lots of useful features:
● Interactive mapping of species and sites on Ordnance Survey Maps, Aerial Photos and other background layers
● Customisable display of species records
● Filter records by year, distance, resolution, species list and more
● Download records in PDF, Excel or Shapefile formats
Where a search returns an extremely large number of records, we may supply Excel and GIS files instead of eMapper access.View examples of our outputs
Using eMapper you have the ability to customise your own reports in PDF, Excel or Shapefile format, using all the data or a filtered subset.
