Character Map of England

The Countryside Agency  - Character Map of England

In 2006, Countryscape carried out the cartography, design and print of a new Character Area Map of England. The publication was the first national map produced that showed the National Character Areas together with a clear topographic map, providing a powerful communication tool. The map was produced at A1 size, showing the extent of the National Character Areas and their relationship with landform and major rivers, major cities and towns, transport infrastructure and Government Office regions. 19,000 copies of the map have so far been produced and distributed.
