Don Catchment project resources

The resources produced during the Don Catchment project, in relation to the Hidden Heritage Secret Stream project, can be downloaded from this page. We have produced a range of documents that are free to download, these include the two project reports on the overall project and the three case studies on erosion risk, habitat connectivity and overland flow. We have also produced sub-catchment opportunity maps of the 6 sub-catchments not covered in detail in the main report, please get in touch if you would like to have copies of these (or associated GIS data)..

The GIS Methods Report details a step-by-step guide to producing hotspot and opportunity maps, including the use of satellite imagery to produce high resolution land use maps. These reports are not intended for complete beginners to GIS mapping to pick up and use. If you have not used GIS for mapping and processing data before you may find the list of useful links towards the bottom of the page helpful in gaining basic skills in GIS before you attempt to apply the work outlined here to your own area of interest.
