The Atlas of Rural Settlement in England GIS

The Atlas of Rural Settlement in England GIS AbstractThis article describes the results of a project to use the maps of terrain and nineteenth-century rural settlement published in Roberts and Wrathmell's An Atlas of Rural Settlement in England to create data ready for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software. The first part summarises the process by which the maps have been converted from their original format to GIS data. The contents of the resulting data collection are outlined, followed by a discussion of the means by which the data will be disseminated and some of the limitations of the data. The second part examines how the data on terrain and settlement nucleation and dispersion have been re-analysed using spatial analytical tools to examine patterns of rural settlement at a national scale. The conclusion sets out the wide-ranging potential for re-use of the Atlas materials in conjunction with other data. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Landscapes Taylor & Francis

Abstract

AbstractThis article describes the results of a project to use the maps of terrain and nineteenth-century rural settlement published in Roberts and Wrathmell's An Atlas of Rural Settlement in England to create data ready for use in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software. The first part summarises the process by which the maps have been converted from their original format to GIS data. The contents of the resulting data collection are outlined, followed by a discussion of the means by which the data will be disseminated and some of the limitations of the data. The second part examines how the data on terrain and settlement nucleation and dispersion have been re-analysed using spatial analytical tools to examine patterns of rural settlement at a national scale. The conclusion sets out the wide-ranging potential for re-use of the Atlas materials in conjunction with other data.
