Public Assets Map – Recreating DCLG Mapping software

DCLG last month produced their “Public Sector Assets Demonstrator“, which displayed on a map the locations of UnUsed Assets around the UK from central government departments and 60 “Pathfinder” councils as part of the Capital and Assets Pathfinder Programme.

I acquired the data displayed on the government system, cleaned it and will be presenting it as another layer on the UnUsed Assets Project that will allow residents to discuss the asset and find alternate uses for them.

This is a proof of concept application, which uses a different methodology from DCLG in that I load the points as points rather than as a clickable image layer, this allows for popups, and layered features. It would also allow for some very interesting filtering options!!
