In addition to GIS data sets held by various bodies (Natural England, Environment Agency, English Heritage, Devon/Cornwall Wildlife Trusts and local/national AONBs), TAGSCAPE is exploring ways of collecting new data from people and communities who use the two landscapes we will study in depth. In addition, TAGSCAPE is working on a project in the West Indian Ocean with Plymouth Marine Laboratory and partners.
To support this process, I have discussed and presented the work of the project to MSc students at Plymouth University. They took modules in relevant subject areas – Environmental Consultancy, Ecological Survey Evaluation and Mitigation, Environmental Impact Assessment, and Sustainable Development. And because my work is visual, I would also like to engage with students on art and design-related courses.
Project progress is catalogued below and is being regularly expanded and updated.
