How to use the Lifelines map.

The Lifelines map allows people to see how the project is progressing with areas of pesticide-free land spreading across the map, helping insects and wildlife to travel safely across the landscape.  The map has several layers and basemaps that can be switched on and off with the menu in the top right corner.

If you would like to join the Lifelines map, and agree to manage your garden or land without using pesticides * please send us the ID number of your land.   To get your ID number, do the following:

1. Make sure the Lifelines Project layer is active so that the boundaries of each parcel of land in the UK Land Registry become visible. 

2. Navigate to your bit of land and then by clicking on it, the boundaries are highlighted and the unique ID number (parcel number) comes up in a box.  Please email us your ID number to be included on the map. If you are a farmer and would like to include part of your land, such as field margins or hedges, in the Lifelines Project, please contact us directly to discuss. 

The map also allows people to see where their garden or land is on the map, and how close they are to Priority Habitats (as identified by Natural England), Woodlands (Forestry Commission Inventory) or National Trust land.   To do this, simply find your garden or land using the mouse and the + and –  in the bottom right corner.  Then turn on the Priority Habitats, Woodland or National Trust in the Layers menu.
