Landnote

LandNote was developed as part of the Contested Common Land project. It was tool to provide interactive online maps for each of the case study areas examined as part of the project: Eskdale in Cumbria, Ingleton in North Yorkshire, the Elan and Claerwen Valleys in Powys, and Brancaster and Thornham in Norfolk.

For each case study site, LandNote included common, manor, and area designation (e.g. SSSI) boundaries, commentaries on historic rights, ownership and management, and information on contemporary environmental governance. Each case study area also had key themes, such as the ‘Farms and Flocks’ and ‘Eskdale Twenty-Four Book’ pages for Eskdale, or the ‘Landscape Legacy’ pages for Ingleborough and Scales Moor.

LandNote used Google Earth as its base map, and the site was designed to perform using the Google Earth 3-D Plug-In.
