Local Community Engagement, Part 7

[Update: Part 8 on temperature anomaly scenarios adds further parameters in the debate.]

Part 1 introduced this project to engage local residents in villages north of Cambridge UK. Part 2 elaborated on some resources available and communication via Story Maps. Part 3 looked at three more resources, introduced an open call and closed with an Elevator Pitch. Part 4 looked at community engagement's key differentiator, to search for local info your way, not the search engines'. Part 5 introduced our own Wikipedia Gazetteer map to complete our infrastructure guide of "What is in Cambridgeshire?" And Part 6 is a manifesto of sorts, in the form of a draft press release.

Local Community Engagement, Part 6

[Update: Part 7 on coastal inundation scenarios adds some parameters in the debate.]

Part 1 introduced this project to engage local residents in villages north of Cambridge UK. Part 2 elaborated on some resources available and communication via Story Maps. Part 3 looked at three more resources, introduced an open call and closed with an Elevator Pitch. Part 4 looked at community engagement's key differentiator, to search for local info your way, not the search engines'. Let's round this off with our own gazetteer, and then touch on issues around sea level rise maps. And Part 5 introduced our own Wikipedia Gazetteer map - jointly with Terry's Wikipedia savvy and Adrew's mapping skills - to complete our infrastructure guide of "What is in Cambridgeshire?".
