Request Data


ERCCIS acts as the central holding point for biological and geological data for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. 

Want to find out what wildlife can be found in your area, need data for a research project or need to make a commercial request for wildlife, habitat or designation information?

Whether you’re a researcher or student, a landowner, local recording group or working on requesting data for commercial reasons, such as to support planning applications ERCCIS can help.


What We Offer

We offer 3 different services for requesting data and a variety of different options, to suit your needs as best as possible:

     - For all commercial enquiries based around a standard search area and most popular datasets

    - For commercial users requiring a non-standard data search

     - Requests for Students, Local Recording Groups or other Non-commercial purposes
