BosqMap software for phase 1 Habitat Survey

We have developed a tool for producing Phase 1 habitat maps simply and easily - it utilises BosqMap Forms.  MapInfo fill pallet, line styles and symbols have been customised so that they match the styles in the JNCC Handbook for phase 1 habitat and users simply draw the boundary of the habitat and select the habitat type and a new phase 1 habitat map can be up and ready for digitising in seconds.  The software works on all MapInfo versions from 8.0 onwards and we can customise it to exactly meet your specifications.  Contact us if you would like us to send you an evaluation version or to find-out about our pricing structure.
