Our MuBu digital canal project is now live. Part one of the plan is now complete the web designer has finished his work (we are very pleased with the results). We have added some of the photographs and info to the site, but over the summer volunteers of all ages have been snapping digital pictures of our waterways to add to the site. The hardest job is identifying the exact place on the map the pictures were taken, especially where trees obscure the view on Google Earth.
Over the winter, volunteers will be adding more pictures and information.
Part two of the plan is to purchase and install a dedicated computer so that visitor to Foxton Canal museum can also view the digital map.
