Exploring the use of GIS technology for ASCENT

Geography provides the content and context for understanding our natural European environment.

The ASCENT project uses Geographical Information Systems (GIS) as the enabling technology to help plan, analyse, measure, design and manage our uplands sustainably.



The ASCENT Map Gallery  contains a suite of maps and apps developed during the project lifetime. Those maps and apps are developed to support the key objectives, to compliment research undertaken and to display information in a 3D environment, thus allowing for a better understanding of and to monitor sustainable interventions over time.



This story map is best viewed on a PC or a Laptop rather than on a mobile device to enable better interaction with the 3D scene and to navigate and explore the content.
