Biodiversity Metric 3.0 QGIS template and import tool

Closes 31 Oct 2021

Opened 7 Jul 2021


We have developed a QGIS template and GIS data import tool to facilitate the bulk import of data into the Biodiversity Metric 3.0.

This consultation seeks user feedback on these and the accompanying guidance.  


Why your views matter

The QGIS template and GIS import facility is a brand new addition to the Biodiversity Metric 3.0. It was not part of the earlier metric 2.0.

We want to ensure that these tools work well for users and so we are seeking feedback on your experience in order that we might undertake any further revisions to the template, import tool and guidance.
