Wednesday 8 November 2017, Battleby Conference Centre
Who is it for?
Policy officers and Geographic Information practitioners from local authorities, NGOs and Government organisations and researchers - in the fields of (for example) Green Infrastructure, Land and Environmental Services, Parks, Access, Planning and Health. We are keen for policy and GIS staff from the same organisation to attend together where possible.
What is it about?
The new-look Greenspace Map has now been produced by Ordnance Survey and it’s available as an open data and MasterMap layer. This event is an opportunity to learn more about the data, find out how others have already been using it and discuss future ideas and opportunities. We will look at how the new dataset differs from the original Scotland’s Greenspace Map dataset and share some of the initial facts and figures coming out of the new data.
What will you gain from attending?
Better understanding of the new generation dataset and how it can be utilised at a variety of scales and in a wide range of circumstances. Networking opportunities throughout the day will enable participants to share ideas and meet others who are already using the map. The event will encourage policy officers, practitioners and GIS professionals to work together.
