This custom built map is a good example on how to have your own custom map and still achieve
highly interactive content. Based in Flash the map is easy to use and has a 'drill down' on data, getting more detailed as you zoom in. More layers become available in the side bar when your in particular areas and zoom levels.

Currently there are 3410 verified ancient trees available

Other layers of data are available:
  • Protected Areas
  • Sites of Special Scientific Interest
  • Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • National Nature Reserves
  • Local Nature Reserve
Other valuable information is also given whether is private or has access to pubic.
  • Car Parks
  • Footpaths
  • Information Points
  • Entrances
  • Cycle Routes
To use the interactive map (in flash) go to
and zoom into your area of interest.

Nice touches through out - print for personal use and the find works as it should.
Even the little flash intro (not too long) of leafs falling is a visual guide that something is happening.

*Note the 'Zoom Bar' is back to front - compared to conventional mapping applications out there.
