How to use

How to use this tool

On opening the agri-food landscape tool, you will see an overview of top-level infrastructure categories, with the numbers showing how many assets are held in each category. Clicking on one of the colour-coded circles will present a number of sub-categories. Clicking on one of the sub-category options will scroll the page to a map of the UK with bubbles presenting the number of assets in each region. Clicking on any bubble on the map view will present the list view for that region. On this part of the page, you now have the option to filter the results by clicking on one of the sub-categories. You can also filter the results by the sectors each asset specialises in, the location by region or by the name of the asset (begin typing in the search box to start narrowing down the results). Once a list is narrowed down to under 250 entries it is possible to select map view, which will show a map of the UK with the locations of the selected organisations. In both views, you can click on an individual entry to view further information and links to its website and Twitter feed. In almost all cases, websites contain contact details so that you can ask questions or begin collaborative discussions.

 

Another view, accessed via a toggle at the top of the screen, categorises the data by individual sector (Food and Drink, Livestock and aquaculture and Plant and Crops). Clicking on a sector will allow you to filter the resulting list in the same way as described above.
