Using Technology to support and promote the Chilterns landscape
Nowadays, a lot of information concerning the human and natural environment, heritage, planning and construction projects such as HS2, is published as geographical data which can be overlaid onto maps and satellite images. This data can be collected in the field as part of a project, or supplied and shared by central and local government, academic and environmental agencies. Enabling the Chiltern Society to be able to create its own GIS system and map information relating to the Chiltern area, will enhance our ability to support and promote the Chilterns. Being able to make use of this information will allow us to better assess the impact of historical, current, and future development on our unique landscape, and be able to publish information in the form of maps.
