The UKHab Survey App is trusted by ecologists
“The UKHab Survey App is an easy-to-use, intuitive tool for habitat surveying. The flexibility of the drawing options is key to being able to record accurate data in the field. Assignment of habitat categories follows a logical flow of decision screens with the UKHab hierarchy fully embedded. We see a multitude of applications for the app in terms of Environment Act 2021 duties, planning, through Biodiversity Net Gain and habitat condition monitoring.”
