Students will help with the collation of data onto paper maps which will be converted into a GIS geospatial database.
This will then be made available online and become the benchmark data and a key input into developing new community level initiatives for improving the local environment. The School of Geography and Environmental Sciences, in partnership with local Community groups, the Borough Council, the PSNI and the Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Partnership have instigated a Community engagement project. The objective of the project is to help individuals and community organisations engage with the PSNI and statutory organisations to identify and address key social issues such as drug dealing and anti-social diving/behaviour in the local area.
Submission of record and reflection of the community event and subsequent mapping of outputs - minimum of 100 words.
Complete a total of 30 hours combined of preparation, attendance at community event and post event collation and digitising of geo-spatial information.
