Warwickshire Waste Visualisations

Description: Provides a visual analysis of the types of waste processed by Warwickshire Recycling Centres over a six year period. Data can be viewed in a number of different ways and filtered by a specific locationto show trends over time for different areas of the county.


Warwickshire Historic Environment

Created By:  David Brown

Description: A web application at that uses the archaeological data released recently from the Warwickshire Historical Environment Record.

The application lets you select the class of items (buildings, monuments, and/or find-spots), and type, location, and/or keyword which are used to do simple string-matching to retrieve a bunch of items.  These are shown on a map as clusters or clickable icons which then show an information box.  Full details of an item can then be shown by clicking in the information box.  There’s even a link to the WCC TimeTrail page for the item.

Specific items by record number can be located, as can all items within an OS Grid square of 1km, 10km or 100km. It uses Google Maps with the usual road, satellite and hybrid choices, and an historical map based on out-of-copyright OS maps from 1913-1947 is also selectable.

Warwickshire Reality View

Created By: Marv Johnson

Description: “The application is a simple geolocated map and listing function but which uniquely allows users to view a live augmented reality version of the data via the users iPhone & Android mobile phones. Think of how Arnie in the ‘Terminator’ viewed the real world but with digital information overlaid giving him name, address, directions, distance all in relation to his current position. Another way of describing the app is to think of a mobile SatNav system that uses a real-time camera view instead of tired old graphics and googlemaps to display Points of Interest (POI’s) depicted as graphical icons.”

    Some way of reporting dead or broken links would be good. The bridge height and weight app is no more I fear…. One of the drawbacks of ‘The Big Society’ is the way that voluntary activity can just suddenly disappear!!
