Tuesday, 21 November 2017 - Wednesday, 22 November 2017
9:30 am - 4:00 pm
At the conference you can hear from Ordnance Survey how they created the Greenspace map and how you can use the data as an evidence base for example in green Infrastructure planning, natural capital accounting, the health agenda, and encouraging people to participate in outdoor recreation. Ordnance Survey will also explain how the industry is using the GetOutside platform (including the Greenspace map) to drive participation in outdoor activities, the plans for the future of the initiative, with opportunities for partners to get involved.
We would explore how this information can be used to plan and shape more people getting outside to participate in outdoor recreation leading to a range of social and physical benefits for people and we will have case studies from Scotland where they have had a Greenspace infrastructure map for a while and how it has been used
The programme will have presentations from Ordnance Survey, the experience from Scotland and a series of workshops both technical and how people are using the map.
