Plotting Public Rights of Way Issues and Signage

Plotting Public Rights of Way Issues and Signage

Overview

Found under the "PROW Management" collection, there are two layers to help when it comes to surveying and protecting vital public rights of way.
When using these layers, remember you can use Geolocation (Using Geolocation (GPS Positioning) to use your phone GPS position as the plotted position. And you can add photo attachments as you save.
These layers are Collaborative, meaning other local councils can see what you've added. Likewise, you can see what others have plotted, aiding your efforts to improve the state of PROWs
