Data Supply and Reconciliation between NRHE and HERs Research and Development Phase

Project 6953 Main Final report

By Crispin Flower, Mike J Lush

This project investigated how the Historic England National Record of the Historic Environment (NRHE) could be accessioned to Heritage Environment Record (HER) databases, building upon previous work that suggested that such a process would be beneficial and well supported.

Both this and the previous project contribute to the Heritage Information Access Strategy (HIAS).

Historic England commissioned staff from Exegesis Spatial Data Management to prepare this report.
