Submitting records to the BTO
Ringing and nest recording data are either submitted to the BTO via a free desktop application called Integrated Population Monitoring Recorder (IPMR) or via Demography Online (DemOn), the online data entry system for ringers and nest recorders to input their data directly into the BTO database. With DemOn, there is no need for individuals to back-up their data, upgrade when any changes are made, or add in rings issued as this is all done centrally. Users are able to input, view and edit their data as well as export information for analyses and report production.
