We were recently demo’ing some scenarios of how to use the historical maps with current day Ordnance Survey maps and we thought we’d share the maps we created.
This example is of coastal erosion in Happisburgh in Norfolk. By using the historic maps and our drawing and measurement tools you can trace the coastline in the 1890’s, the 1950’s and the current coastline. You can also use the measurement to see that in some areas the coast has eroded about 150 metres..
I ‘think’ in the GCSE and A-Level NEA’s (though don’t quote me! I’m not a teacher 😉 it talks about data presentation and using secondary data sources; and on both fronts Digimap for School more than covers these specifications.
