BIS is one of four Local Environmental Record Centres covering Wales.
BIS provides a means to ensure that the best possible use is made of wildlife records - and that they directly contribute to the protection of wildlife.
Over time we will list here web based tools and software that could be useful in wildlife recording.
Grab a Grid Reference Duo (BNHS)
This very useful tool provided by the Bedfordshire Natural History Sociey (BNHS) allows you to rapidly locate a grid reference using either a Google aerial map or an OS map.
This can be invaluable when locating or double checking grid references whilst recording wildlife.
Find Your Local LERC
If you are unsure which Local Records Centre (LERC) covers your area this tool will alow you to find out.
You can simply navigate to a point on the map and search - the tool will tell you which LERC you need to contact and provide you the contact details.
Please note: this tool only works within Wales.
Ordnance Survey Coordinate Transformation Tool
This tool allows for rapid transformation of eastings and northings to OS GB grid references.
It also handles Lat/Long (in a variety of formats) and cartesian coordinates.
