Map Guide: KDBH Forum Interactive Map

 

When the map launches there will be this symbol          in the centre of the map. Click on it and a pop up window appears similar to the one shown. Also the Panel on the right opens. This displays Groups and each contains a range of items.

KDBH HE Listed Buildings: contains 39 buildings listed by Historic England (HE) in KDBH.  Learn more about listed buildings at: Historic England 

Clicking on the small arrow opens the Group, clicking on the Eye symbol makes them Visible or Hidden on the map.

In the top right is a small but useful button which zooms in/out so that all Visible items fit on the map.

 

The + and - symbols Zoom in and out but scrolling your mouse will do the same thing. 

The < and > symbols Close/Open the Panel.

As you zoom in the Dots will become Pointers, HE sites have their logo and HE on the Pointer. 

Select any Dot/Pointer on the map OR an item in the Panel and a photo plus information about that site appears.

To clear the image and text click on the map outside the image.

KDBH Heritage Assets: is work in progress and is waiting for photographs and more details.

Heritage Assets are of local historic or architectural interest. They used to have the old Historic England Grade 3 Classification but this was abolished in 1974. More information at SMBC: Local List of Heritage Assets

Clicking on the MapHub logo takes you to the site the map was created on and gives you the same features.
