This datasets contains species recorded as part of CCW's Phase 1 Intertidal habitat mapping survey. The Intertidal mapping took place between 1996 and 2005. All work was carried out by an in-house survey team. more

Purpose of data capture: Surveys were undertaken to provide an assessment of sites as possible SSSI's and as a basis for developing sensitivity mapping. There are also used in the production and evaluation of EIA's and as an integrated information resource for local authorities' structure and development plans in the coast and or the consideration of planning applications. Methods of data capture: Species were recorded in one of three ways:- in target notes, in species lists for certain (mainly specialised and nationally important) biotopes found on a site, or in species lists for the whole site and therefore precision is variable.
