Community Mapping

The facility was set up to allow Sustaining Dunbar projects to access various digital data sets using a variety of free or very low cost GIS tools.

The viewing facilities used Mapmaker, which has tools to create high quality printed maps, while ArcView was employed for rapid screen query, exploration and viewing. Other tools included the open source QGIS.

A suite of mapping data sets are available for community use, but you may need a GIS mechanic to assist, a lesson many have not learnt – doing anything complicated with maps is still in the realm of arcane for non-technical types.
