About Recorder 6
Recorder 6 is the ultimate tool for those entering, collating and exchanging records of species and habitats. It includes extensive, and very flexible, facilities for outputting the data including the ability to link other systems, such as GIS, directly to the data holdings. All of this makes it the package of choice, particularly within the professional sector of the market where efficiency, flexibility and scalability are critical. However, the low cost means Recorder is readily accessible to individual recorders who want to harness professional quality software for their own use.
