UK Projects Map
Welcome to the River Restoration Centre's (RRC) interactive project map.
A subset of projects that RRC hold on the National River Restoration Inventory (NRRI) with an accurate grid reference are displayed here. The NRRI includes proposed projects, completed projects and case studies and much more information that isn't displayed on the map. The data has been gathered since RRC started in 1994 and illustrates the breadth of projects which are being delivered in different parts of the UK. Please contact RRC if you would like to know more about the NRRI, or if you would like to add a project to the growing database.
Some case studies have PDF links to more information about the project.
Users are encouraged to inform the RRC of any projects (proposed or completed), which are missing from the map by contacting ProjectMap@therrc.co.uk.
[If you have the minimum level of information to submit your project to the EU RiverWiki (by following the instructions on the RiverWiki page), your project will then be uploaded to the UK projects map by RRC avoiding duplication].
There are a number of new features to introduce:
Google Maps Clustering
Google automatically clusters sites close to each other on the map. Each cluster that has more than one marker (denoting one project) shows a count of the number of markers inside the cluster; otherwise a single marker is shown. Click on the cluster icon (number) to zoom in to view the individual markers in that area. You can also zoom in or out by using the scrolling (wheel) device on any PC mouse. This alters the number of clusters and number of markers within clusters as it changes dynamically.
There are eight different filter categories. Six filters are simple tick boxes and these can be viewed by clicking on the category heading.
Two additional text filters allow users to search for a project by ‘Project name’ or ‘Tributary’. Users are encouraged to type in the name of the watercourse or a place name. Therefore to search for projects on the Wensum, search for ‘Wensum’. Users are discouraged from searching for ‘River’ as this is a non-specific search. ‘Tributary’ is defined as the watercourse where the project was undertaken on, whereas ‘River’ denotes the watercourse will flow into (before entering the sea, where applicable). Be aware of this when searching for projects by ‘Tributary’.
Users can choose to apply one or multiple filters. For example, users can click to view all ‘Completed’ projects; or a multi-criteria search for ‘Completed’ projects in the ‘EA Anglian’ region by clicking on the national agency filter. The map will automatically change to reflect the filters as they are applied.
