Screenshots of LERC Wales App
LERC Wales App enables you to get involved with
biological recording. Contribute your species
sightings with GPS acquired coordinates,
descriptions and other information, thus providing
scientists with important new biodiversity
information that contributes to nature
conservation, planning, research and education.
Your data will be kept secure and will be regularly backed up. Automatic checks will be applied to your observations to help spot potential errors, and experts can review your sightings. All wildlife sightings for non-sensitive species are shared with other users and will be made available to National Recording Schemes, Local Environmental Record Centres and Vice County Recorders (VCRs).

If you already have an account with one of the existing
online recording webistes that use the Indicia system (
SEWBReCORD, WiRED or
then you will be able to view and edit your records through that
website. You will need to register with iRecord using the same email address.
The LERC Wales app allows you to take your online recording experience into the
field with your smart phone or tablet. Although the records are held and stored in iRecord
if you have an account on one of the three websites that directly interact with iRecord
(SEWBReCORD, BIS’ WiReD or WWBIC’s online recording database) then you can view and edit
your records there. These websites will be referred to as the LERC Wales Indicia websites
from this point onwards. Please also note that Cofnod’s ORS is not directly linked to iRecord
so records entered via the app will not be editable on that system.
In order to submit records using the LERC Wales app you will need to register an account with iRecord,
as this is where the data are held. If you also have an account with one of the LERC Wales Indicia
websites, then it is important to use the same email address when registering so that the accounts
can be linked together. If you don’t have an account with one of the LERC Wales Indicia websites then
that is fine, you can view and edit your records on iRecord instead. If at a later date you wish to
make use of the other features that the Welsh Indicia websites offer then make sure you register with
the same email address!
