Essex Rivers Hub

Historic data is something that is incredibly important and allows us to look at changes in the environment. Unfortunately many historic maps are hand drawn which means that they are not easily compared with today's digitised data.

Currently we have many staff and volunteers going through the laborious process of digitising this hand-drawn data. Although this takes time, this will allow comparison work to become quick and easy, helping to inform the management decisions of the future.

To view an example of a hand-drawn map of the Blackwater to be digitised please click here.
