The Countryside Agency

Database of LCA in England

Countryscape produced an online database of Landscape Character Assessments in England, working in partnership with Diacono Associates and the University of Sheffield. The website features an interactive map, providing links to locally held information. This was the first time that such data had been collated and made available via the internet.

Countryscape was involved in every aspect of the project: designing the database; developing the website and data-collection form; engaging with the national landscape community through targeted mailings; and generating publicity for both the data-collection exercise and final launch of the product. The database continues to be updated and maintained by the landscape community.
