What has been done:

08/10/11: Old OS map images added.

Survey Days 1 and 2: On 22/9/11 and 06/10/11 SWAAG members completed an initial GPS survey of the major earthworks. See Image. This data will be used in future map generation.

October 2010: SWAAG had a GPS training day when Trevor Pearson from the Yorkshire CBA demonstrated their professional grade surveying equipment. We were also able to compare SWAAG's methodology using 'high end' Garmin hand held units (GPSmap 60CSx). This exercise confirmed the suitability of this grade of GPS to map earthworks down to approximately 4 metres. All SWAAG maps are drawn using this technique. Details are available on this page.
