Background

Background

  • Old paper atlas – BP, NCC, MPCU

  • Was primary ref tool for CP and response in UK

  • Out of date – misinformation

  • Potential –ve impact when used for:

Problems

Problems

  • Licensing issues – OS, UKHO

  • Poorly managed, inaccessible data

  • Inconsistent records in single dataset

  • Incomparable regional datasets

  • Incomplete data coverage – national

  • Multiple datasets for same kind of data

[email protected] - www.magic.gov.uk


Problems1

Problems

  • Inconsistent data collection and classification

  • High spatial resolution for broadscale mapping purposes

  • Doubts over dataset origins, quality, scale etc
