Guidelines for using these web pages
These web pages have been tested using Microsoft Internet Explorer
6.0 and Microsoft Windows Media Player 10 on Microsoft Windows XP
Each page has a Home page link on the right-hand side and links
at the top as detailed below:
- Home: takes you to the welcome page where
the report can be downloaded.
- Study Area: enables you to access maps of
the study area, the HLC types in the study area, the target
sample grid and the survey points.
- Samples: enables you to access all data related
to each sample recording taken at the survey points via a map
with blue triangle hotspots.
- Sound maps: enables you to access all the
sound maps (raster grids) generated using GIS.
- Historic Sources: enables you to access the
historic sources collated during this project.
Each individual sample page accessed from the interactive map has
the same layout. They each include a localised map exported from
the GIS (with OS 1:10,000 base mapping) with a red circle -towards
the centre of the map- indicating the target and a blue triangle
showing the actual point where the sample recording was made.
Below the map are image thumbnails that allow you to access the
photographs (JPEG format) associated with the sample.
Below the image thumbnails are hotlinks to media files:
- Recording launches the associated MP3 file
of the sample recording.
- Movie 1 (and sometimes Movie 2) launches
the associated movie file (AVI format).
- Survey & Analysis launches the associated
spreadsheet (MS Excel format with one worksheet tab containing
survey details and the other tab containing analysis data. The
tabs are in the bottom left-hand corner of the spreadsheet).
Notes on accessing multimedia files
All image thumbnails are designed to launch the appropriate JPEG
file in a separate browser window. Depending on your browser set-up
and screen resolution, these may require re-sizing to view the image
at its full extent. Close the new browser after viewing the image
to return to the sample page.
MP3 files will launch in a multimedia player, such as Windows Media
Player or Real Player, depending on your set-up. In some PC set-ups
for security reasons you may be asked whether you prefer to open
the file or save it. It is simplest to open the file and it will
then play in your designated media player. Any MP3 file can be saved
to hard drive if preferred.
Movie (AVI files) will play in your designated media player. Again
you may be asked if you wish to open or save the file; choose open.
Note that all video files have accompanying sound and many of them
are loud and muffled due to the strong winds present when the movie
clips were made.
Spreadsheet (MS Excel) files will launch in a new browser window
and display as if in Microsoft Excel. If asked if you wish to open
or save the file, choose open. After viewing the spreadsheet, and
when closing the new browser window, you may be asked if you want
to save changes; choose no and return to the sample page.
