40Representing the location of a heritage object within a 'virtual space'.
41Representing the approximate location of a heritage object as a fuzzy boundary.
42A GIS generated map showing Bronze Age barrows over Landscape Types and rivers in Hampshire

48The first HLC in England – carried out in Cornwall
49A selected area of the HLC for Cornwall
50HLAMAP – HLA as applied in Scotland (from the RCAHMS website).
51A screen capture from GIS - Illustrating the more detailed HLC study of field boundaries in an area just north of Harlow, which is one of the mineral study areas in Hertfordshire. The thick grey lines represent modern OS mapping of surviving boundaries, whereas the various superimposed coloured lines reflect different periods of historic mapping, such as Estate, Tithe and Enclosure maps. This illustrates the degree of boundary loss and change through the past two centuries. This will enable dating of surviving field boundaries or sections thereof for future land management.
52Urban HLC as applied in St Austell Cornwall
53A screen capture of the HBSMR Help manual – this approach embeds the HLC within the HER.
54Entry Level Scheme for CAP reforms

57HLA overlay showing a Designed Landscape.
58SMR overlay showing same Designed Landscape as an archaeological site.
