When you are next browsing the Compton and Shawford Parish Council website, take a look at the interactive maps.
At the national Ordnance Survey 2014 PSMA Conference in March, Adrian Walmsley picked up two awards on behalf of the Parish Council for work in the development of the maps on this website.
His paper on the use of OpenSpace Maps won the (catchily titled) PSMA 2014 Methodology Awards for “the most transferrable methodology” and “the most empowering for the community”.
The two other main awards went to Bristol City Council, with large organisations such as three different fire services (including Hampshire) being Highly Commended.
Congratulations and well done Adrian, for once again putting Compton and Shawford Parish Council well and truly on the map!
