English Heritage

Charged with the huge responsibility of preserving England’s historic buildings and landscapes, English Heritage uses Esri’s ArcGIS Desktop solutions to enhance significant research projects. ArcGIS is a vital tool to gain a deeper understanding of the properties and sites within its care, to help preserve them for future generations.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • English Heritage used ArcGIS to create ground models to analyse the locations of castles and lighthouses around the country.
  • The organisation scanned and validated ancient paper maps, going back to the 16th century, to gain new insight into the development of an Essex estate.
  • ArcGIS provides a ‘one-stop shop’ enabling the organisation to manage all data in research projects, from the field work right to the end archive.


"ArcGIS is enabling us to set new standards for historic landscape analysis."

Trevor Pearson, Head of Technical Survey (Archaeology)
