MapMate Users’ Group          

The YNU and Butterfly Conservation (Yorkshire Branch) have started a MapMate users group. The intention is to enable users to renew or join at a much reduced subscription rate (we need a minimum of 25 users but are aiming for 50 plus). The scheme will be administered by BC (Yorkshire Branch) and it will be open to members of both societies, affiliated groups and individuals. Penny Relf <> will help in organising this.

We would like to compile a list of, names, email addresses and the MapMate unique identifiers (CUKs) of existing MapMate users interested in renewing their licences via this scheme. Potential users should also register their interest. If you wish to start using MapMate should contact the group to obtain an installation disk and be allocated a unique CUK.

Note: although the initiative is via the Lepidoptera Group there are many users who use MapMate for recording a wide range of other groups including plants and dragonflies and we would encourage them to join in with us.
