Using GCER


User Guide image

We have produced a free, downloadable User’s Guide detailing the resources and services on offer from GCER.

The Guide is available as a rapid-download low-resolution version for on-screen reading, and a print-quality high-resolution version.

Local Environmental Records Centres (LERCs) carry out a wide range of work. In addition to providing some background to GCER and other LERCs, the User Guide includes information about:

  • collecting, collating and validating species sightings;
  • data searches for ecological consultants
  • checking planning and works applications for local authorities
  • GIS mapping and data analysis
  • interpretation maps and presentations
  • project work with partner organisations
  • wildlife information for students, researchers and members of the public
