Public Map Platform

White cottage on Anglesey

Our AHRC funded £4.6m project ‘The Public Map Platform’ aims to empower communities through an adaptable platform that integrates diverse voices into spatial data, enhancing decision-making and resource allocation.

Beginning on the Isle of Anglesey, a symbol of community resilience, the project receives strong support from local authorities eager to improve community well-being. Within this project, our team focus on environmental mapping in Anglesey, addressing heat, air pollution, and flooding through on-site school monitoring and rural climate walks, in collaboration with citizen scientists.

This approach not only motivates individuals to improve their living conditions but also equips local authorities with guidelines to mitigate environmental stress. Overall, the project seeks to foster community empowerment and environmental resilience by merging technology with active citizen engagement. This multidisciplinary research project involves Cambridge, Cardiff, and Glyndwr Universities.
