Featured below is a selection of our older projects, which are displayed in more technical terms and feature raw project data, including live and interactive maps, alongside other downloadable files.
|Bee Roads North||
This project aimed to develop a network of wildflower-rich meadows and grasslands that allowed pollinating insects to move across North West England. CBDC collaborated with Buglife, Natural England, and record centers to analyse species and habitat data and model the most likely routes for bees and other pollinators.
|Cumbria Bird Atlas||
CBDC staff worked with members of the Cumbria Bird Club to create over 1,500 maps illustrating the distribution of species, breeding birds and wintering birds in Cumbria.
|Cumbria Moth Atlas||
CBDC worked with the members of the Cumbria Moth Group to improve moth recording across Cumbria which resulted in a new Atlas suitble for downloading to a mobile phone.
|Cumbria Mammal Atlas||
CBDC and recorders noted that there was not much mammal recording other than bats in the County. CBDC helped set up the Cumbria Mammal Group to created an atlas (suitable to download to mobile phones) to encourage more records.
|Upland for Juniper||
Cumbria Wildlife Trust carried out a survey of Juniper in Cumbria. CBDC were invited to produce maps and retain the data for future studies.
|Mapping Atlantic Woodlands||
Plantlife’s LOST Senior Project Officer is working to conserve Lichens and Bryophytes in Cumrbia’s Atlantic Woodlands. By mapping species data and analysing meteorological and topological maps CBDC predicted which woodlands in Cumbria should host the rare Atlantic Woodland species.
|Mapping Wild Rusland||
CBDC undertook a complex project for the Rusland Horizon project partners including Natural England, Lake District National Park, and others. We were asked to create a GIS layer of phase 1 habitat maps of the valley, which consisted of over 11,500 polygons. CBDC also created a GIS layer of data from Stewardship Farm Environment Plans and a revised priority and broadhabitat layer for the area.
|Rusland Hidden Hedgerows||
Hedgerows may be a little underappreciated, but they’re very important for wildlife. We mapped and analysed hedrgerow data for Rusland Horizons and the Cumbria Wildlife Trust.
