Bat Conservation Ireland (BCIreland) promotes the conservation of bats and their habitats throughout the island of Ireland.
BCIreland had an existing website that they felt needed refreshing and modernising. It didn’t use a content management system, wasn’t mobile-friendly and they had a new logo and wanted to use the logo’s colours as a basis for the new site. As a charity, BCIreland needed to accept donations and memberships, as well as sell a few products as part of their fundraising.
Besides the general site refresh, BCIreland had some two specific application requirements:
Integration of data for bat record maps that is imported from their main bat database nightly, and new mapping images created with the new data. They wanted to keep this.
BCIreland wanted a way for people to report bats they have observed, with data stored in a database and displayed on a map.
