Welcome to the Wales Activity Mapping GIS web tool

This GIS web system is maintained by Pembrokeshire Coastal Forum on behalf of a partnership of organisations involved in the management of the coast and countryside across South West Wales. The partnership seeks to assist in the sustainable management of the area to the maximum benefit of all potential users by constructing a coherent picture of activity.

This website is designed primarily for those needing to consider recreation, conservation and tourism in decision making and is not aimed at promoting any activity or location.
