The biodiversity monitoring activities are considered as meaningful to ensure a great worldwide environment. In Brazil, a biodiversity monitoring program is being performed and due to this reason Information Systems are needed to support the collect, storage, management and delivery of data. The Information System’s users are usually environmental analysts that perform several administrative and technical tasks. Thus, to know this user is essential to develop a appropriate software interaction that allow them to fully perform their task with satisfaction. This paper presents a survey performed in Conservation Units in order to collect data from users that present their tasks and so produce a user’s profile to be used as parameters in the interaction development process. This survey was performed after in loco visits in some units and the final data were used to support the development of the first release of the proposed software interface.
