The UK Biodiversity Action Reporting System (BARS) supports the conservation community by providing a place for people to post and search for information on work being done to benefit important habitats and species. This information includes the level of activity, where it is taking place, and the project's goals. BARS also maps action locations and produces statistical summaries of the data. The goals of the system are to help committees coordinate their actions and to help government agencies report on biodiversity loss prevention work for their various commitments and treaties. Developer can access and display BARS data using SOAP calls issued in XML format.
