Where to survey

Below is a map showing the locations of existing transects (routes), which you can survey. Click on each icon for more information to help locate a site suitable for you. Your transect should be around 1km long, located on or near moorland, and follow a public right of way.

Once you have chosen which site you would like to survey, download the transect pack from the table below. Some sites have 2 transects - called T1 and T2. Each pack contains a transect guide, map, recording form and health and safety guidelines.

If you have a GPS unit you can also download GPX files to help you as you survey.
