Centre for Ecology & Hydrology

This environmental research organisation uses a mobile GIS app to speed up the collection and analysis of vast amounts of data, captured in the field.  The first time it used this Esri solution, it saved over £700,000 and succeeded in publishing its survey results twelve months faster than before.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • Data collected in the field flows from mobile tablets via data analysis to the online presentation of survey results with no costly manual intervention
  • Survey data is analysed and published more quickly, which allows government ministers to make policy decisions based on up-to-date evidence 
  • ArcGIS mobile improves data quality, helping the organisation to present an accurate picture of environmental change in the UK


"The latest Countryside Survey gives the most accurate picture yet of our changing landscape thanks to the improvements in data collection and analysis that Esri UK has enabled."

John Watkins, senior environmental information scientist, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology
