Riverfly Partnership launches online database for ARMI

The new online database for the Anglers' Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (ARMI) is now live. The system, built by the Freshwater Bilogical Association for RP, is a ground breaking and eagerly awaited development for the ARMI and will enable registered users to use the following features:

  • online data entry;
  • view site specific ARMI data over time (for own site(s) and for any other ARMI site);
  • view ARMI taxon data;
  • traffic light system for completed surveys including feedback trail between monitor, coordinators and statutory agency contact where trigger level breach is confirmed;
  • Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping of all ARMI sites across the UK;
  • automatic trigger breach reporting to statutory agency contact;
  • catchment ARMI reports;
  • historic data import facility.

 

ARMI volunteer monitors, hub coordiantors, group coordinators and RP tutors can now register to use the system at www.riverflies.org and details of a programme of regional training workshops for coordinators and tutors will be announced by RP soon.
