Turning nature into data with NatureMetrics

By |7th April 2021|

Strengthening our understanding of UK biodiversity is a priority for effective management, yet we have an urgent need for better data. NatureMetrics scientists have developed scalable DNA based monitoring technologies that complement our existing biodiversity dataflows, giving rise to a new data layer for biodiversity generated using DNA species leave behind in their environment.

About the Author: Katie Cruickshanks

As biodiversity product manager, Katie and her team develop data products, tools and insights which help decision-makers to make better choices for the natural world. She understands and interprets the biodiversity data needs of clients across sectors such as infrastructure, conservation and extractives. Katie works with a team of statisticians, ecologists, data scientists and designers to create and deploy biodiversity and health metrics. This is a new and exciting area of growth for NatureMetrics which will launch us from services which discover the species that are present, to providing ergonomic visualisations of what they mean, why they are important and what progress our clients are making to enhance and protect nature and support functioning ecosystems.
