Visualising Changing Land Use on the Courtown Estate Home Farm, 1915-1928
This visualisation shows changing land usage on the home farm of the Courtown Estate, Co. Wexford between 1915 and 1928.
I scanned a second series Ordnance Survey map and uploaded it to ArcGIS where I georeferenced it. I then digitised those fields that made up the home farm, creating a layer for each of the years. In the attribute table I noted the land use. Using the time slider functionality I created this visualisation.
Note the symbology:
Brown - land 'in hand'
Green - let land
Grey - land not let
Purple - land taken up by the Land Commission
