19-06-2018 by Robyn Mason

Congratulations to John Pouncett of the School of Archaeology for his critical role in winning the Esri UK Customer Success Award for Community Engagement for the Atlas of Hillforts of Britain and Ireland project.  The Atlas uses Esri's GIS mapping software and beat off strong competition from projects at Atkins and Transport for London. A research team based at the universities of Oxford, Edinburgh and University College Cork devloped the Atlas and it has been helped by citizen scientists from across England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Ireland, experiencing over 200000 visitors to the site in its first eleven months.
