NBIS collates, manages and supplies biodiversity data to users.
NBIS responds to data enquiries from local authorities, consultants, statutory agencies, conservation bodies, voluntary recorders and the general public. Most enquiries seek information about species, habitat and site data. NBIS responds with distribution maps and inventories of species and habitats.
Although there is currently no public access to the centre, NBIS is always keen to hear from Norfolk residents who want to find out more about local biodiversity, perhaps in the context of parish plans.
NBIS develops and runs projects or are partners in other organisations' projects. Projects tend to focus on data management/digitisation, spatial ecology, mapping and public engagement in wildlife recording. Emphasis on partnership working is very important.
