Increasing access to information on land

Speakers: Chris Parker (Geovation), Tom Kenny (Shared Assets)

To understand and make good decisions about land people need quality information. This session aims to get people thinking about how land data and mapping can help them. We will talk about what information is out there and problems with accessing it. We will then introduce two projects aimed at making information more accessible. The first is Land Explorer, from Shared Assets, a new website that makes it easy for growers to access the information they need. The second is a challenge raised by Geovation, inviting and supporting ideas for ‘Greener, Smarter Communities’. This session will be introduced by Councillor Bob Price, Leader of Oxford City Council.
