Community Story Map

Local Community Engagement, 1 & 2

[Update: Part 3 will tie together community maps and climate mapping]

In its ongoing efforts to open national data repositories - which I used in almost a decade here - Ordnance Survey now provides infrastructure data as Open Zoomstack or as Data Hub (trial), from which I completed our map with, say, greenspaces or site info to complement OS Open Carto or Open Streetmap basemaps:

Here is the start of a community engagement presentation - Cottenham Open steps you through history - story maps are an innovative way to engage and to help public understanding of our region. 


  1. Brilliant! What a great start to a fascinating new project; so many new opportunities and wonderful to see Cambridgeshire and Cottenham leading on this with world-class digital mapmakers engaged from the get-go.

    Look forward to seeing what the next chapter reveals. Might it be a linkup with the mighty Wikimedia Foundation?

  2. Good to see Parts 2 and 3 publshed and all four sites put to task in their different ways.

  3. Usually I never comment on blogs but your article is so convincing that I never stop myself to say something about it. You’re doing a great job. Please Keep it up. community integration
