Exegesis Spatial Data Management


Water recreation

Client: Defra

Mapping of water recreational use for DEFRAExegesis provided data collation, analysis and reporting services for a national project researching access to water-based recreation facilities across the UK. A number of new, large-scale datasets of water resources had to be compiled for the project and extensive workshop style consultation undertaken to ensure that the compiled maps were complete and accurate. National or regional transport infrastructure, population and settlement datasets were also compiled and along with the resources datasets were subjected to network analysis to determine accessibility of water resources to population.
