Cranborne Chase Tranquility Mapping

Project description: 

In 2006, the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England (CPRE) published a new tranquillity map of England. Tranquillity is a key service provided by Cranborne Chase & West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). In order to direct efforts towards sustaining tranquillity in the AONB, original data was obtained and further investigation in the area was undertaken. ‘Ground truthing’ of the England map took place between October 2008 and January 2009. New data was overlaid over the England maps.
