The data has been used as the evidence base for the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s (PNCPA) Recreation Plan. Information from the project has also assisted in providing data for the PCNPA Recreational Website where management issues and knowledge of capacity have proved a useful tool in drawing up messages for best practice. It has also assisted in highlighting locations that may not need marketing for a particular activity due to site infrastructure.
Recreation layers have been used in the Management Plan for the Carmarthen Bay and Estuaries European Marine Site (CBEEMS) see bespoke work. The project is part of Welsh Government’s Destination Management Toolkit looking at sustainable management of tourism destinations throughout Wales. It has also been used by the Erocips and subsequent project ARCOPOL when emergency planning for coastal pollution responses.
Alert layers have been built into the GIS Mapping system to potentially provide spatial information on things such as road/beach/path closures – large activity events – Harmful algal Blooms – etc. Email alerts can be provided to users of the system.
